Abstract

This chapter considers the normal macroscopic, microscopic, and ultrastructural morphology of the human ovary and its hormonal function. Since the anatomy and function of the ovary vary considerably at different stages in a woman’s life, these aspects are considered during adulthood, childhood, and after the menopause.
