The seminal vesicle is a small gland in the shape of a coiled tube with a muscular wall. Its secretory epithelium produces the bulk of the fluid which comprises the human ejaculate.
Like the prostate, this gland appears designed for the slow accumulation and occasional rapid expulsion of small volumes of fluid.
The highly folded mucosa of the seminal vesicle is lined by a cuboidal to columnar epithelium. The duct of the seminal vesicle empties into the ejaculatory duct.
