Anatomical terminology

Vesicular appendages of the mesonephric duct. Typically they are asymptomatic.

In the male remnants of the mesonephric duct may be present as well and are also known as appendix of testis or hydatid of Morgagni.

They are rarely absent, and are attached either to the free margin of the mesosalpinx or to one of the fimbriae, and are pedunculated vesicles, filled with fluid, about the size of a small pea. The pedicles frequently attain a considerable length.[1]
