ANATOMY. . 379 line of the urethra and nearest to the bladder of all the accessory ducts.On each side of the utricle are the orifices of the vasa deferentia. Stilllower down, and at a considerable distance from the bladder, the ducts ofthe prostates open into the urethra on each side posteriorly. The factthat in animals the utricle enters the urethra in an entirely differentlevel than the prostatic ducts shows that the prostate cannot be consideredthe homologue of the female uterus, which arises from the same fetalstructure as the utricle, the Miillerian duct. Histology.—The prostate consists of gland tissue surrounded bystroma which is continuous with the capsule, the urethra, and the bladder.Convergent strands of stroma extend from different points of the capsule Urethra I V%^

Between the tubules and the stroma is a layer of connectivetissue containing the vessels and nerves, and upon this lies a basementmembrane.

The tubules areclosely and irregularly packed together except where gland tissue issca
