The study was made on morphometric parameters of human fetal suprarenal gland. The present study was carried out in the department of Anatomy, Government Medical College & Hospital, Chandigarh. The material for the study consisted of 30 spontaneously aborted human fetal specimens from 12th to 28th weeks of gestational ages. The suprarenal glands and kidney were taken from fetal specimens for morphological study. The measurements were done compass, scale and vernier caliper. The present study established a significant and positive correlation between the length,breadth and thickness of suprarenal gland. All the parameters were correlated to one another. Maximum increase of all the parameters were observed from gestational age of >15-20 weeks to >20-25 weeks.
It was observed in the present study that the commonest shape of right suprarenal gland was tetrahedral whereas the shape of left suprarenal gland was semilunar.
