Jump to: navigation, search

Tiedemann's gland --> greater vestibular gland

One of two mucoid-secreting tubuloalveolar glands on either side of the lower part of the vagina, the equivalent of the bulbourethral glands in the male; ensheathed with vestibular bulbs by ischiocavernosus muscles. Thus erection and muscle contraction cause secretion into vestibule of vagina.

Synonym: glandula vestibularis major, bartholin's gland, duverney's gland, tiedemann's gland, vulvovaginal gland.
