Abstract

The anatomical consequences revealed that the bulbourethral glands in Syrian hamsters are in the form of
a pair of small, oval-shaped glands and have a white color, similar to the fruit of a pea, each gland has a
single duct that flows into the urethra, and these glands are buried under the cavernous bulbar muscle on
both sides of the urethra. The long , wide and weigh were respectively about 0.7 cm and 0.4 cm and 1 g.
Histopathological outcomes presented that the bulbourethral glands are a complex tubular-alveolar gland,
lined with simple columnar epithelium, these glands are multi-lobed, each lobe consists of small simple
alveoli that are connected to each other directly or through narrow and short tube. The goal of this study to
know more anatomical and histological information for this gland for its significant and important role in
the sexual reproduction process.
