Fig. 80. Diagrammatic section to show the position of the Wolffian and Genital Ridges on the dorsal wall of the abdomen

At the beginning of the second month of foetal life, the Wolffian body is well developed : by the end of that month it has become vestigial, the only parts remaining being those connected with the genital organs. It projects as a ridge from the lumbar and dorsal regions on each side of the mesentery, extending, on each side of the spine, from the posterior cervical region, where the diaphragm is developed, to the pelvis behind, where the ridges become approximated (Fig. 80). To its inner side, in the lower dorsal region, lies the genital ridge. The genital and the Wolffian bodies have each its own mesentery but these two mesenteries have a common attachment — the common uro-genital mesentery (Fig. 80). On section the Wolffian ridge is seen to be made up of convoluted tubules terminating at their blind extremities in glomeruli. The tubules open into the Wolffian duct just as in the frog; the duct is situated in the basal or attached part of the ridge. It runs backwards in this ridge and turns into the pelvis to end with the Müllerian duct (also situated in the Wolffian ridge) in the cloaca of the hind gut.
