Kursteiners canals

Kursteiners canals

a foetal complex of vesicular, canalicular, and glandlike structures derived from parathyroid, thymus, or thymic cord; they are rudimentary and functionless unless persistent postnatally, when they may occur as cystic structures in the vicinity of parathyroid III and thymus III. Kursteiner described three types, type II canals being associated with thyroaplasia.
