Encyclopedia > Epoophoron

The epoophoron , also called "organ of Rosenmüller", is a remnant of the Wolffian duct that can be found next to the ovary and fallopian tube. It may contain 10-15 transverse small ducts or tubules that lead to the Gartner’s duct (also longitudinal duct of epoophoron) that represents the caudal remnant of the Wolffian duct and passes through the broad ligament and the lateral wall of the cervix and vagina. The epoophoron is a homologue to the epididymis in the male. Remnant – the lineup includes Matt Gill (lead vocals, guitar), Angela Ausumus Gil (vocals), Hilary Malone (vocals), Jon Demma (trumpet), Jason Spoolstra (saxophone), Noah Galaviz (lead guitar, vocals), Greg Stone (bass guitar, vocals, trombone), Leonard Ehalt (electric guitar, vocals), Lucas Wynn (acoustic guitar), Matt Kalina (acoustic guitar, vocals), and Justin Portillo...

Male Anatomy The epididymis is part of the human male reproductive system and is present in all male mammals. ...


While the epoophoron is located in the lateral portion of the mesosalpinx and mesovarium, the paroophoron ( residual remnant of that part of the Wolfian duct that forms the paradidymis in the male) lies more medially in the mesosalpinx .


Clinically the organ may give rise to a local paraovarian cyst or adenoma.
