It is generally believed that there are three ways in which these cavities and ducts can form: 1) by lysigeny, a process involving the autolysis of a mass of mature secretion-filled glandular cells that release the secretion product as they degenerate; 2) by schizogeny, involving the separation of cell walls in the center of a group of glandular cells creating an intercellular space that enlarges greatly during development; 3) by schizolysigeny, a combination of the two processes, where cavities initiate schizogenously but further increase in size with autolysis of the glandular cells.
