  • Endocrine glands and exocrine glands are two types of glands in the human body based on absence or presence of ducts.
  • Endocrine glands secrete their respective hormones directly into the blood stream i.e., they are ductless glands. For example: Pituitary, adrenal, pancreas, pineal, thyroid glands etc.
  • Exocrine glands have ducts to pass their secretions. For example: sweat, salivary, mammary, ceruminous, lacrimal, sebaceous, and mucous glands.
