is a very specialized organ divided in 4 major regions (initial segment, caput, corpus and cauda) and 5 different cells types (principal, clear, halo, basal and apical cells) (Cornwall, 2009).
The condition may result from sexually transmitted infections or occur when bacteria from a urinary tract infection or prostatitis (prostate infection) migrate to the epididymis
After verification of the diagnosis of the cases by examining the hematoxylin-eosin stained sections with a light microscope, hilar tissue, tunica vaginalis, lymphovascular tissues, rete testis, and epididymis
were reexamined for the invasions.
Conclusion: Human epididymis
4 is a better diagnostic tool than CA 125 in benign-malignant discrimination of adnexal masses.
Right testes were decapsulated and caput/corpus and cauda segments of right epididymis
In all the parameters measured for testicular morphometry (Table 2), testis density and epididymis

7 Casillas11 in 1973 demonstrated the accumulation of L-carnitine by spermatozoa during its passage through epididymis
in mammals and it was found to have strict correlation with the development of fertilising capacity.

and are filled with crystal clear fluid.
Testes and epididymis

Of these, human epididymis
protein 4 (HE4), was identified as a promising marker.
Fluoride treatment leads to oxidative stress as indicated by an increased level of conjugated dienes in the testis, epididymis
, and epididymal sperm with respect to control.
