We have studied Meckel's diverticulum(MD) of the duck(Anas platyrhynchos platyrhyncos, Linne) by histological and immunohistochemical methods. Because MD were first observed in 2 weeks after hatching, tissues were taken from 2 weeks to 32 weeks after hatching groups. MD were observed as like any parts of intestinal tract that composed with simple columnar epithelium and numerous mucosal gland especially, cecum except that many lymphocytes were exist in this study. Also a number of bovine chromogranin(BCG)-, serotonin, and somatostatin(SOM)-immunoreactive cells were observed in epithelium and submucosal gland in this study, so it could be suggest that the MD of the duck serve as some digestive and lymphatic functions.
Key Words: Meckel's diverticulum, duck, BCG, somatostatin, serotonin, immunohistochemistry
