Visceral layer of tunica vaginalis

Other Terms: Lamina visceralis (Tunica vaginalis testis)


The visceral layer of the tunica vaginalis covers the testicle except part of its posterior margin, the globus major, and the lateral side of the body of the epididymis, and is in relation with the contents of the lower one centimeter of the spermatic cord. A deep depression of this tunic exists between the testicle and the body of the epididymis, laterally and above, and is called the digital fossa (sinus epididymis). The visceral layer closely adheres to the tunica albuginea of the testicle and gives it a glistening appearance.
