Abstract: Gubernaculum testis was described way back in 1762 since then it had been considered to have a role in descent of testis. We have studied its morphology to through light on its role in descent of testis. Materials & Method- aborted male human fetuses between 12th to 40thweeks of gestational age with no obvious congenital abnormality weretaken for study. The length of gubernaculum, distal attachments of and position of testis was noted. Observations and Results- the length of gubernaculum was increased just before descent and decreased with descent. Also the thickness of gubernaculum was increased during descent. The length remained more or less constant from 12th week to 40th week and a slight decrease in length was observed. Conclusion- the gubernaculum is important structure in descent of testis and along with several other factors helps in descent of testis.
