In prostate histology you will find varying numbers of individual tubuloalveolar glands on parenchyma. These prostate tubuloalveolar glands actually derived from the epithelium of pelvic urethra in animal.
You need to identify the structure like capsule, stroma and parenchyma or glandular elements from a prostate histology slide.
Hey, welcome again to anatomylearner and thanks for getting into this article. If you looking for prostate gland histology with labeled diagram then I am here to help you.
In this article I am going to describe prostate histology of animals. I will share prostate histology labeled diagram with you so that you might learn prostate structure easily.
At the end of this article I will also share prostate histology drawing with you. Again if you need prostate histology ppt for practice you may find ppt here in this blog.
You may learn other accessory gland histology of different animals like seminal vesicle histology from this blog.
Okay, let’s get into today’s main discussion – prostate gland histology with labeled diagram.
I would like to provide the summary of prostate histology of animal so that you could understand what structures you are going to learn from prostate gland.
From the prostate histology slide you need to identify the following important structure under light microscope at laboratory –
#1. Dense connective tissue capsule of prostate gland of animal
#2. Large trabeculae originated from the connective tissue capsule of prostate gland of animal
#3. Connective tissue stroma of prostate gland of animal
#4. Glandular elements of prostate gland of animals – secretory tubules, alveoli and intraglandular ducts with their lining epithelium
#5. Lamminated prosthetic concretions of secreatory material in the lumen of tubules and alveoli from prostate gland structure of different animals
Hope you could understand what you are going to learn in details from prostate histology slide of animal.
Let’s find these structures from the labeled prostate pictures.
Identifying characteristics of prostate gland under light microscope
Hope these following important characteristics of prostate histology structure will help you to identify this gland under light microscope.
Here I enlisted the common identifying characteristics of prostate gland structure under light microscope. But I will also point out the main differences of prostate structure from different animals at the end of this article. If you interest to learn prostate gland structure from different animals then continue this article.
#1. Presence of dense connective tissue capsule at outer part of prostate gland
#2. There are larger trabeculae present in the prostate gland structure which divided the gland into different lobules
#3. The secreatory tubules, alveoli and glandular ducts are lined by simple cuboidal or simple columnar epithelium
#4. Presence of prosthetic concretions at the lumen of prostate tubules or alveoli
Okay, do you want to learn prostate histology in details with labeled diagram?
Prostate histology labeled diagram
In prostate gland you will find the two important parts in most of the animals.
#1. Compact or external part of prostate gland of animal and
#2. Disseminate or internal part of prostate gland of animal
You know the external part is entirely surrounds the pelvic urethra in animal. The internal part of prostate gland located in the propria sub-mucosa of the pelvic urethra.
If you don’t know about the pelvic urethra histology then you may learn it from anatomylearn.
You need to describe the three main parts from the prostate histology of animal. These main three parts of prostate gland are –
#1. Capsule structure of prostate gland
#2. Stroma of prostate gland and
#3. Structure of glandular part of prostate gland in different animal
Capsule structure of prostate gland
The prostate gland surrounds by a thick capsule which is made with the dense connective tissue with more smooth muscles cells. You will find more smooth muscle cells in the capsule at internal part of prostate gland of animal.
The septa from the thick capsule penetrate the prostate gland and contains dense connective tissue along with more smooth muscle cells. These septa are called trabeculae in prostate gland and separate the gland into external and internal parts into different individual lobules.
These trabeculae are larger and predominantly muscular in the external part of prostate gland in different animals
Stroma of prostate gland
The stroma of prostate gland histology consists of connective tissue along with more smooth muscle fiber and collagen fibers
Structure of glandular elements of prostate histology
The secretory parts and duct of prostate gland surrounds by the loose connective tissue structure. These secretory unit and ducts are predominant in the external part of the prostate gland.
Secretory lobules, alveoli and the intraglandular ducts of the prostate histology lined by the simple cuboidal or columnar epithelium. At the terminal part of the secretory duct you may find stratified columnar or transitional epithelium in prostate gland structure.
In the tall columnar cells of secretory unit possess microvilli and sometime bleblike apical projection in prostate gland.
Corpora amylacea which is also known as laminated prosthetic concretions of secretory materials are found in the lumen of prostate tubules and alveoli.
Prostate histology in different animals
In bull prostate gland you will find the well-developed internal part and anatomically it encircle the urethra.
The capsule, trabeculae and the interstitial connective tissue of prostate gland are rich in smooth muscle fibers in horse
External part of dog prostate is well developed and you will find few glandular lobules in the internal part. Laminated prosthetic corpuscle may be occurred in the lumen of prostate tubules and alveoli in cat.
Prostate histology drawing
Here I am going to share the prostate histology drawing with you. You may follow this simple drawing of prostate gland structure. Please try to draw better than this prostate diagram. Just focus on the every single important structures of prostate structure

Bulbourethral gland histology
Bulbourethral gland is a compound tubular or tubuloalveolar gland in different animals.
#1. Tubular gland in bulbourethral found in boars, cat buck and
#2. Tubuloalveolar gland in bulbourethral found in stallion, bull, ram and other animals
In bulbourethral gland histology you will find a fibroelastic connective tissue with variable numbers of striated muscles cells. The trabeculae of bulbourethral gland originated from the capsule and consist of dense connective tissue and fem smooth and striated muscle cells.
Secretory unit of bulbourethral gland is lined by the tall simple columnar epithelium. The secretory duct of bulbourethral gland is lined by the simple cuboidal epithelium in different animals.
I hope you got the best guide to learn prostate histology from different animals. Was this prostate histology labeled diagram helpful for you?
