paramesonephric duct

Thursday 12 March 2009

Definition: The paramesonephric duct (or Mullerian duct) forms the fallopian tube at about 9 weeks of gestation. Multiple invaginations near the ostium of the tube become the fimbriae. Any secondary invagination that does not connect may form a blind sac and enlarge to form a paraovanan cyst.
