Roots of chilli (Capsicum frutescens L.) infected with Meloidogyne incognita (Kofoid & White) Chitwood were collected from experimental field of Crop Diseases Research Institute (PARC), University of Karachi. Infected plants showed severe yellowing and stunted growth. The infected roots were collected for histopathological studies to assess the damage caused by Meloidogyne incognita. The cortex was found to be eroded and the cortical cells became congested. Section of female nematode was present in the large giant cells, surrounding the
