Previous studies in the rat demonstrated that lymph vessels arise from various sites in the testis and then anastomose to form the main lymph trunk toward the testicular artery. Although mice are as commonly used in the laboratory as the rat, precise knowledge concerning their testicular lymphatics has not been established. In the present study, the patterns of testicular lymphatic drainage in the mouse were examined using local injection of India ink into the testicular parenchyma. The results demonstrated that, besides the lymph trunk surrounding the testicular artery, a lymphatic drainage route running along the ductus deferens is also present.
