The present review aims to present a perspectiveon a relatively unknown part of the mammalian internal genitalia: their cranial suspensory apparatus. This apparatus shows wide divergence of development when examined during the fetal period or during adulthood, in males or females, or in individuals across a variety of species. In rats and other mamalian species the apparatus undergoes a distinct patern of sexually dimorphic development and fetal testicular androgens are proposed to play a key… CONTINUE READING
