Male external genitalia and perineum
Sagittal section of left testis, viewed from medial side
The testis has been cut in a sagittal plane. The plane of section does not include the entire length of the epididymis due to the fact that the body of the epididymis curves away from the sectioned surface.

3 . Mediastinum testis (rete testis not grossly visible)
4 . Body of epididymis
5 . Connective tissue
