why does cortex region is dotted and medulla region striped in kidney

Asked by rdk_kulkarni | 3rd Oct, 2020, 05:37: PM

Expert Answer:

The nephron has two parts- a cup shaped body called malpighian corpuscle or renal corpuscle and a tubular part called renal tubule. The cortex has a dotted appearance because of the presence of these malpighian corpuscle. The striated appearance of the medulla is due to the renal tubule.
