Abstract
The study was done to assess the development of human fetal kidney. The present study was carried out in the department
of Anatomy, Government Medical College & Hospital, Chandigarh. The material for the study consisted of 30 spontaneously
aborted human fetal specimens from 12th to 30th weeks of gestational ages. The kidneys were taken from fetal specimens
for histological study. Slides were prepared. Hematoxyllin and eosin was done. It was observed nephrogenic zone
decreased as gestation advanced, PCT and DCT were more prominent after 18th week of gestation. Cortico medullary
differentiation was seen in later gestational period. It was thought that an understanding of histology of fetal kidneys would
elucidate pathogenesis of abnormal kidney.

Key words: glomeruli, proximal convoluted tubule, distal convoluted tubule, kidney, cortex, medulla, nephrogenic zone,
