The Müllerian ducts (or paramesonephric ducts) are paired ducts of mesodermal origin in the embryo. They run laterally down the side of the urogenital ridge and terminate at the Müllerian eminence in the primitive urogenital sinus.
History and etymology
They are named after Johannes Peter Müller (1801-1858), a pioneering German physiologist and comparative anatomist who described these ducts in his text "Bildungsgeschichte der Genitalien" in 1830.
