It was dorsally and laterally related to the pelvic wall. Ventrally it was related with urinary bladder, vasa differentia, seminal vesicles, prostate, pelvic part of urethra and cowper’s gland in male and uterus and vagina in female. It had two surfaces: inner and outer surface. The outer surface of rectum was darker than inner surface and inner surface showed longitudinal mucosal folds. Externally rectum may be divided into two parts, peritoneal and retroperitoneal. Peritoneal part of rectum attached to pelvic cavity by mesorectum and retroperitoneal part of rectum attached by connective tissue and muscular bands.
