embryonic development of pituitary gland
Embryonic development of Pituitary gland

  • Nerve endings
  • Herring bodies
pineal gland pineaalklier
  • The pineal gland was called the "third eye" by ancient people.
  • center for the production of the hormone melatonin.
  • Melatonin is implicated in a wide range of human activities.
  • It regulates daily body rhythms, most notably the day/night cycle (circadian rhythms).
Claims that the hormone slows the aging
  • process (a defense against free radicals)
  • prevents jet lag, is implicated in seasonal affective disorder, coordinates fertility,
  • allows for deep restful sleep patterns.
The pineal gland calcifies with age and melatonin production correspondingly decreases.
  • This decline in melatonin has been suggested to be a trigger for the aging process.
  • pineal gland is a center for navigation in birds
  • Pia mater om klier = septa
  • lobules
  • Pinealosiete ( irregular) vertakte prosesse
  • neuroglia (ondersteunend)
  • Structural unit = follicle; connective tissue capsule - lobes
  • follicular cells or principal cells spoed van metabolisme
  • parafollicular cells or C cells verlaag bloedkalsium
  • colloid (inactive storage form of thyroglobulin)
  • fenestrated capillaries and reticular network
thyroid papillary carcinoma36
Thyroid papillary carcinoma
  • The most favorite site of metastasis
  • is to local lymph nodes in the neck.
thyroid medullary carcinoma
Thyroid medullary carcinoma
  • At the center and to the right is a medullary carcinoma of thyroid.
  • These neoplasms are derived from the thyroid "C" cells and, therefore, have neuroendocrine features such as ecretion of calcitonin.

ovaries background
Ovaries background
  • Progressive development of follicles
  • differentiation of ovum
  • proliferation of follicular cells and organization of stromal cells into a connective tissue sheath
  • Flattened follicular cells become cuboidal and then columnar in shape surrounding oogonium
  • follicular cells divide actively to produce a stratified layer around the ovum = stratum granulosum composed of granulosa cells
  • Know known as the primordial follicle
  • this is transformed into primary follicle
  • adjacent stroma organizes into capsule = THECA FOLLICULI separated from the stratum granulosum by basal lamina

Theca interna


enlarged stromal cells

theca folliculi

differentiates in to the:

Theca externa



Oogonium surrounded by follicular cells that

produce granulosa cells

Primordial follicle

Primary follicle

with theca folliculi

Proliferation of follicular cells - follicle becomes ovoid

stratum granulosum 8 - 12 layers thick

antrum develops

Secondary or antral follicel

Graafian follicle


After ovulation -

bleeding in cavity of follicle

Wall of follicle collapses -

thrown into folds

Follicular wall -

transformed into temporary glandular structure = corpus lteum

Granulosa cells of the follicle

differentiate into large pale staining cells



Cells of the theca interna



recap ovaries
Recap: ovaries
  • Mature follicle - Graafian follicle
