Term Detail
MP term:abnormal male preputial gland morphology
Synonym: abnormal preputial gland morphology
Synonym: abnormal preputial glands
Synonym: abnormal Tyson's glands
Synonym: preputial gland dysplasia
MP id: MP:0002717
Definition: any structural anomaly of the paired, lobulated, modified sebaceous glands of the corona, the neck of the glans penis, and the inner surface of the prepuce with pheromonal functions in male rodents; male preputial secretions strongly attract females, may accelerate estrus, and have been implicated in intermale aggression; homologous to the clitoral glands (aka female preputial glands) in female rodents; there is no true anatomical equivalent in humans
