Question

Each testis is covered by a fibrous connective tissue covering called


  1. Tunica albuginea

  2. Rete testis

  3. Stroma

  4. None of these


Solution

The correct option is A

Tunica albuginea


The testes (testicles) are the male gonads, that is they are the primary male reproductive organs. The multilayered tunica covers the testes. It facilitates blood supply to the testes and creates a partition between sperm-producing regions of the testes. The tunica albuginea is the fibrous covering of the testes. It is a dense blue-grey membrane, composed of bundles of white fibrous connective tissue.
