Paramesonephric Duct

This mouse image shows the relationship between the mesonephric and paramesonephric ducts opening into the urogenital sinus.

  • The paramesonephric duct began as an infold of surface epithelium lying along the surface of the genital ridge.
  • Estrogens, both maternal and fetal, stimulate its development and that eventually of the external female fetal genital structures.
  • In contrast, the mesonephric duct regresses, remnants of this duct may remain lying within the broad ligament.
