Term Detail
MP term:abnormal bulbourethral gland morphology
Synonym: abnormal Cowper's gland morphology
Synonym: abnormal glandula bulbourethralis
Synonym: abnormal Méry gland morphology
Synonym: bulbourethral gland dysplasia
MP id: MP:0001169
Alternate id: MP:0000669
Definition: any structural anomaly of any of the small paired racemose (compound tubulo-alveolar) glands below the apex of the prostate in males, located posterolateral to the membranous portion of the urethra at the base of the penis, between the two layers of the fascia of the urogenital diaphragm, in the deep perineal pouch, and enclosed by transverse fibers of the sphincter urethrae membranaceae muscle; they secrete a clear fluid known as pre-ejaculate (Cowper's fluid), and are homologous to the greater vestibular (Bartholin's) glands in the female
