Fig. 79. Scheme of the Wolffian Body of the right side

In Fig. 79 the Wolffian body, such as occurs in the frog, is represented diagrammatically and it corresponds in structure to the Wolffian body which appears in the human embryo. Each body is made up of a main duct and a series of tubules. In the frog, as in the human embryo, the hind gut ends in a dilatation, the cloaca. In the cloaca open the rectum, allantois, and the two Wolffian ducts — right and left. In the frog, the Wolffian bodies lie on each side of the spine, their anterior ends reaching forwards to the region of the heart. Each duct is joined by numerous convoluted tubules — the Wolffian tubules. Each tubule is furnished with a glomerulus at its blind extremity and in most features agrees with a secretory tubule — such as are seen in the permanent kidney. These tubules secrete the urine ; the Wolffian duct conveys the urine from the tubules to the cloaca. The anterior tubules, however, loose their secretory function and become associated with the genital gland. In the male frog they convey the spermatozoa to the Wolffian duct, which thus carries both urine, and spermatozoa. In the female, the genital Wolffian tubules are connected with the ovary but are quite functionless (Fig. 79).
