The goal is to study the morphofunctional changes in the kidneys under the influence of light desynchronosis, an analysis of the degree of reversibility of these changes. Material and Methods. The study was carried out in two stages on 72 white male rats. In the first series of experiments, animals underwent round-the-clock light exposure for 10 and 21 days. In the second series after round-the-clock exposure to light for 10 and 21 days, the beings were exposed to natural light for 21 days. The animals of the control group were kept in a natural light regime. Morphological and morphometric analysis of histological sections of kidneys stained with hematoxylin and eosin was performed. Results. It was found that on the 10th day of the experiment, cellular infiltration of the cortex occurs, and the edema of the interstitial tissue develops. These changes progress to the 21st day of the experiment and are combined with a significant decrease in the area of the glomerular capillary network and expansion of the lumen of the capsule of the glomerulus of cortical nephrons. When assessing the long-term consequences after 10-day illumination, the diameter of the renal corpus is reduced along the long and short axis. The changes registered on the 21st day do not reach the control values, which indicate that they are irreversible. Conclusion. The revealed structural and functional changes in the kidney indicate a negative effect of light desynchronosis: 10-day lighting leads to a breakdown of compensatory possibilities and the development of distant morphological changes; long-term light exposure (within 21 days) leads to the development of pronounced irreversible structural disorders.
