T.236 Epididymis (adult human).

The highly tortuous duct of the epididymis (ductus epididymides) is cut in several places.

The duct is lined with pseudo-stratified epithelium. Note the stereocilia (long, branching micro villi) on the luminal surface.

Contrast with the ductus deferens shown in the next slide.
