Urethral gland
Latin glandulae urethrales urethrae masculinae
Gray's subject #262 1250

The urethral or periurethral glands (also Littre glands after Alexis Littré[1]) are glands that branch off the wall of the urethra of male mammals. The glands secrete mucus, which is incorporated into the semen, and are most numerous in the section of the urethra that runs through the penis.
