Wolffian Duct


Kid.WD
The Wolffian duct is a duct that originates from the mesonephros, and gives rise to the ureteric bud of the metanephric kidney. The duct persists in males and contributes to parts of the gonad. In females, the duct regresses.

Differentiation of the canals of the internal male sex organs require: atrophy of the paramesonephric duct (Müller) and development and differentiation of the mesonephric duct (Wolff).
