The present study aimed to clarify the toxic effect of potassium bromate in Wistar albino rats. Thirty rats were divided into 5 groups. The first group severed as control and the other four groups received potassium bromate orally at doses 50, 100, 200 and 400 mg kg-1 body weight (b.wt.) for 21 days. Rats received 400 mg kg-1 b.wt. died within 3 days and those received 200 mg kg-1 b.wt. died on the 18th day post treatment. The body weights of rats treated with potassium bromate were not affected but the relative weights of the kidney and liver were significantly increased (p
