Instructions: For each histology question, pick the one best answer. This histology test bank is also useful for the histology questions on the USMLE (USMLE step 1).
Leydig cells produce testosterone. These are also called "interstitial cells" or "interstitial cells of Leydig". Sertoli cells are directly involved in spermatogenesis. They are also called "sustentacular cells" or "nurse cells".
Sertoli cells produce inhibin and androgen-binding protein. The interstitial cells of Leydig produce testosterone.
The male genital duct system contains: rete testes, tubuli recti, ductuli efferentes, ductus epididymidis, and ductus deferens. The male accessory glands contain the bulbourethral glands, seminal vesicles, and prostate.
Bartholin's glands are also called the greater vestibular glands. Bartholin's glands are found in females and are homologous to the bulbourethral glands in males.
The prostate gland is found in males.
Skene's glands are also called the lesser vestibular glands and are found in females.
The bulbourethral glands are also called Cowper's glands. The bulbourethral glands are found in males and are homologous to the Bartholin's glands in females.
Brunner's glands are found in the duodenum.
Psammoma bodies are collections of calcium. It is derived from the Greek word "psammos", which means sand.
Corpora arenacea refers to the calcifications seen in the pineal gland. Corpora arenacea is nicknamed "brain sand".
Hassall's corpuscles are the ring like structures found in the thymus.
The spherical structures seen in some prostatic alveoli are called prostatic concretions.
Pacinian corpuscles are pressure receptors in the skin.
Pseudostratified epithelium lines the seminal vesicles.
Pseudostratified epithelium lines the vas deferens.
A gland that has a duct that does not branch is called a simple gland. If the duct
If the the part of the gland which secretes elements is shaped like a tube, it is
The prostate is made of compound tuboloalveolar glands.
The glands of the prostate lie in a fibromuscular stroma. It is also referred to as a fibroelastic stroma. There are bundles of smooth muscle within dense irregular connective tissue.
There are three layers of smooth muscle in the vas deferens. There is an inner longitudinal, a middle circular, and an outer longitudinal.
