Endocrinology of the Male Reproductive System

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (Book)Other

Abstract

The testis lies within the scrotum and is covered on all surfaces except its posterior border by a serous membrane called the tunica vaginalis. This structure forms a closed cavity representing the remnants of the processus vaginalis into which the testis descended during fetal development (Figure 1). Along its posterior border, the testis is loosely linked to the epididymis which at its lower pole gives rise to the vas deferens ( 1 ) .
