Anatomical terminology

Gartner's duct is a potential embryological remnant in human female development of the Wolff canals in the development of the urinary and reproductive organs. It was discovered and described in 1822 by Hermann Treschow Gartner.

The paired mesonephric ducts in the male, in contrast, go on to form the paired epididymis, ductus deferens, ejaculatory duct and seminal vesicle.

In the female they may persist between the layer of the broad ligament of the uterus and in the wall of the vagina.

Clinical significance

These may give rise to Gartner's duct cysts.[2]
