Accessory Adrenocortical Tissue, Mouse
Hummel (1958) studied the location of accessory adrenal glands with the dissecting microscope. Accessory adrenal cortical nodules on the left side surround the vena cava and renal vein, and on the right are in proximity to the renal vein or the adrenal vessels. Dunn (1970) observed these accessory nodules in the mesorchium. They cannot be seen with the unaided eye.
