Abstract

The anatomical and histological structure of the stomach was examined in François' leaf monkeys (Presbytis francoisi). The stomachs consisted of three parts, the saccus, the tubus gastricus and pars pylorica, and had well-developed taeniae and many haustra. The cardiac gland region occupied the saccular forestomach and the anterior half of the tubus gastricus, while the fundic gland region occupied the posterior half of the tubus gastricus. The pyloric gland region occupied the entire pars pylorica. In the mucosa of the cardiac gland region, villus-like processes were observed. The mucosae of the cardiac and pyloric gland regions contained not only neutral mucins but also acid mucins.
