TitleUnpublished paper, 'Note sur un organe, placé dans le cordon spermatique et dont l'existence n'a pas été signalée par les anatomistes' [Note on an organ, located in the spermatic cord, and whose existence has not been reported by the anatomists] by F Giraldès
CreatorGiraldès; F
DescriptionGiraldès gives an account of certain tubular and vesicular bodies which he has discovered in the spermatic cord, and which he considers to be the remains of the Wolffian body of the embryo. The structures in question, which he proposes to designate collectively by the term 'Corps Innominé', form a small group situated behind the tunica vaginalis, between that membrane and the spermatic vessels, and extending usually from the head of the epididymis as high as the point where the membrane is reflected forwards from the cord; sometimes, however, reaching much higher up, or, on the other hand, being more concentrated in the neighbourhood of the epididymis.

Marked on front as 'Archives'. Includes seven plates of anatomical figures.
