Author(s): Kaur Harmeet
Abstract:Introduction: This study can contribute significantly to understand the histological differences of the anatomical ureter in human adult and human featus. This data will be useful for anatomist,forensic expert and pathologist . The ureter truly commands a rather unique position in gross anatomy, owing chiefly to its ever-changing intemallining and its highly specialized muscular coatings.
Aim: The aim of this histological study was to determine the histological differences of the anatomical ureter in human adult and human featus.
Material and Method: tissue samples were taken from proximal, middle and distal regions of ureter od human adult cadaver and human featues and stained with H & E .The histology of the ureter showed considerable differences among various anatomical regions of the ureter. No significant sex-based differences were found.
Result & Conclusion: The ureter were composed of tunica mucosa, submucosa, muscularis and serosa both in human adult and featus.this study can contribute to understand the congenital diseases such as agenesis, hypoplasia of ureter etc.
