Morphological study on the development of human fetal kidney.
Hee Young Shin, Kwang Wook Ko, Je Geun Chi
J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1991;34(8):1045-1056.   Published online August 31, 1991
A total of 293 human fetal kidneys, including those of 42 embryos are studied for the elucidation of temporal development of the kidney. These specimens were interpreted as normal by thorough postmortem examinations. The age of the specimens was determined by developmental horizon criteria in embryos and by correlating crown-rump length in fetuses. Embryos were embedded in toto, cut in various planes and reconstructed...

Thymus is a primary lymphoid organ which has an important role in maturation of immune competence. This organ matures earlier than the other organs, and the informations about its prenatal development are essential to understand the maturation of human immunity. To delineate the weight and morphologic development of prenatal thymus, the authors measured the weight of 221, and observed gross and histologic features of...
