Abstract

Regional variations in the substantia gelatinosa during the prenatal development of spinal cord
in goat was studied using 52 foetuses of various ages. The substantia gelatinosa presented
convolutions by the end of third month of gestation. The frequency of occurrence of convolutions
increased among segments as age advanced. By fourth month of gestation, the substantia gelatinosa
varied in shape in different segments. The maximum average width was at lumbosacral enlargement.
Among the segments of lumbosacral enlargement, sixth lumbar segment presented the maximum
size at all ages.
