    Author(s): Solomon Tesfaye*, Niguse Hamba, Asfaw Gerbi and Zenebe Negeri

    Background: Evaporation of formaldehyde from embalmed cadavers cause terrific systemic hazards, from which the most frequently reported, is respiratory and testicular symptoms. Day-dependent exposure to formaldehyde can cause contact dermatitis, congenital defects like low birth weight and isolated heart disease, cytotoxicity in the respiratory tract in the form of acute lung injury, nasal obstruction, pulmonary edema, and cancer. The histopathologic and morphometric alterations in testis have a strong link with exposure duration periods and highly linked to decrease the function of both sertoli and leydig cells. Several findings ensured such exposure significantly causes and triggers tremendous health effects, but a conclusive review of findings and recommendations related to its oxidative stress and carcinogenic potential on multiple study subje..
