Abstract:
The gross study was conducted on the 30 Large White Yorkshire pig aged between seven months to around one and half year. It was composed of three different parts: head, body and tail. It was attached to the dorsal extremity of the testis by a fibrous band. The upper extremity of the testis was occupied by the head of epididymis whereas lower extremity was slightly thicker and connected to the tail of epididymis. Histologically, the epididymis was covered by the thick fibrous capsule called as the tunica albuginea. It was comprised predominantly of collagen fibres with few reticular and elastic fibres with blood vessels. The epididymal duct was highly convoluted and lined by the pseudostratified columnar ciliated epithelium. The pseudostratified epithelium of epididymal duct had 3 types of cells, viz. principal cells, basal cells and apical cells.
