Germ cells development at particular stages of gonad differentiation during the period of fetal intrauterine life were investigated. The study was performed on 101 ovaries obtained from 76 fetuses and neonates. The earliest ovary obtained was from a 12-week old fetus, the oldest one was from a full-term fetus. The examination of germ cells was based on the analysis of the morphology and enzymatic activity. The morphology of the cells was studied by the use of light and electromicroscopy.
