Abstract

Background: The present study was conducted on vesicular, prostate and bulbourethral glands of buffalo bull to study the seasonal variations. 
Methods: Glands were collected from the abattoir immediately after sacrifice during winter and summer seasons. The anatomical observations of accessory sex glands were done after removal of fascia. The biometrical observations were recorded after dissecting the prostate (corpus and disseminate), right and left vesicular and bulbourethral glands during each season.
Result: The vesicular glands had grape-like appearance and bulbourethral glands were piriform in shape. The prostate gland of buffalo bull was composed of two parts i.e. corpus prostate and pars disseminata. The external or corpus part of prostate remained at the neck of bladder whereas the disseminate prostate was found in the propria submucosa of pelvic urethra. The length, thickness and weight of left and right vesicular gland decreased from winter to summer season, whereas there was no significant difference in width between the right and left glands during summer and winter seasons. The mean length of disseminate part of prostate gland and diameter of bulbourethral gland showed a significant decrease from winter to summer season.
