Alloxan induced diabetes produced angiopathic changes in the corpora cavernosa. These changes induced thickening of the tunica albuginea, deterioration of the arteries supplying the cavernous bodies & thickening of endothelial lining of intact arteries in the cavernosa. The vascular component and the limited breeding experiment conducted here suggests a possible correlation between vascular changes and impotency in male diabetic rats.
