The temporal glands of an approximately 40 years old, female African elephant have been investigated by means of gross anatomical section and histological staining techniques. The tubuloalveolar temporal glands are located lateral of the temporal muscle, medial and dorsal of the zygomatic arch and caudal of orbital ligament. The ventral part of the gland is embedded in a thick layer of fibrous connective tissue. The means secretory duct is extended forming a sinus.

Abstract

The temporal glands of an approximately 40 years old, female African elephant have been investigated by means of gross anatomical section and histological staining techniques. The tubuloalveolar temporal glands are located lateral of the temporal muscle, medial and dorsal of the zygomatic arch and caudal of orbital ligament. The ventral part of the gland is embedded in a thick layer of fibrous connective tissue. The means secretory duct is extended forming a sinus.
Die Schläfendrüsen eines ca. 40 jährigen, weiblichen Afrikanischen Elefanten wurden makroskopisch-anatomisch und histologisch untersucht. Der Aufbau der Drüsen ist tubulo-alveolär. Sie liegen lateral des Musculus temporalis, medial und dorsal des Arcus zygomaticus und kaudal des Lig. orbitale. Sie sind in ventralen Abschnitt von einer mächtigen Bindegewebskapsel umgeben und besitzen einen sinusartig erweiterten Ausführungsgang.
