Anatomical Characteristics of Dorsal Lacrimal Gland in One Humped Camel (Camelus dromedarius)
A.A. Mohammadpour

Abstract:
Dorsal lacrimal glands of 10 camels free of apparent ocular disease were examined to compare the normal anatomical properties of these. All of glands were characterized and measured (length and width) in left and right side. The lacrimal gland in camel was elongated and irregular in outline. The gland located in extends caudally beyond the caudal border of the zygomatic process of frontal bone and was surrounded by periorbital tissue and the periosteum on the inner surface of the supraorbital portion of the frontal bone. The gland was compressed between the bone and the bulb of eye. Dorsal surface of gland was convex and contacted with orbit. The ventral surface was concave that located on bulb of eye. Medial border of gland was wider than lateral in two side. The mean length of dorsal lacrimal gland was 53.7±2.58 and 49.4±2.63 mm in left and right side, respectively in mediolateral direction. The mean wide of it was 20.1±1.37 and 18.2±1.2 mm in left and right side, respectively in anterior-posterior dimension. There was significant difference between length of left and right dorsal lacrimal glands. The mean length of the left dorsal lacrimal gland was greater than the right and difference was significant (p<0.05).
