[Topographic features of the embryogenesis of human adrenal glands].


The investigation of embryotopography of adrenals was performed on 95 embryo and 5-12 weeks old prefetus preparations, by microscopy, graphic and plastic reconstruction. It was abolished that adrenals develop in close morphologic correlation with temporary (primary kidneys, sex glands) and persistent (secondary kidneys) organs of embryonic retroperitoneal space. Developing in close correlation with derivatives of visceral layer of mesoderm (dorsal mesogastrium, mesocolon), adrenals, especially the left one are covered by an additional peritoneal layer during prefetal period.
