Fig. 235. Sections representing three stages in the development of the human mammary gland

(Tourneux)

A, Two months; B, four months; C, seven months.

Each human mammary gland begins as a thickening and downgrowth from the epidermal milk line in the region of the future breast (Fig. 235). During the fifth month, from 15 to 20 solid cords bud off {B). These anlages of the milk ducts branch in the mesenchymal tissue of the corium, hollow out, and eventually produce the alveolar oid pieces (C). Where the milk ducts open on the surface the epidermis is elevated to form the nipple, but this may be delayed until after birth. The glands yield a little secretion ( - witch milk - ) at birth; they enlarge rapidly at puberty and are further augmented during pregnancy, while two or three days after parturition they become functionally active.
