The mesonephros, the gonad, the external genitalia and the developmental relationships between them were examined on 21 goat fetuses, 29 to 92 days old. Three fetuses were not sexually differentiated, however 11 were males and 7 females. The development of the gonad could be divided in a not differentiated stage and a gonadal and external genitalia differentiation stage. A close relationship between the fetal gonad and the mesonephros was found during the stage of differentiation. The epicenter of this relation is the giant mesonephric nephron, a peculiar structure of mesonephros, from which epithelial cells presumably migrate into the gonad.
