  1. The genitourinary system develops from here
    Intermediate mesoderm
  2. The most caudal bit of primitive gut

  3. What are the 3 stages of kidneys?
    • Pronephros
    • Mesonephros
    • Metanephros
  4. The ureters, pelvis, nephron and stuff develop from this
    ureteric bud
  5. The ureteric bud sticks out of this duct
    Mesonephric duct
  6. If nephrons dont connect to collecting ducts, you get this
    Polycystic kidneys
  7. A ureter with no smooth muscle
    Megaureter
  8. A retrocaval ureter can lead to this
    Hydronephrosis
  9. Swelling in the lower part of the ureter because of a too small opening into the bladder can mean this
    Uterocele
  10. The cloaca is divided into two parts
    • urogenital sinus anterior
    • hindgut posterior
  11. What joins the bladder to the umbilicus in a fetus?
    urachus
  12. The median umbilical ligament is a remnant of this
    urachus
  13. The bladder is exposed outside the tummy in this condition
    Extrophy of the bladder
  14. Polycystic kidneys
  15. This kidney stage starts in the fourth week and lasts a few days
    Pronephros
  16. This kidney stage goes from week four to eight and has a bud
    Mesonephros
  17. This kidney stage goes from week five to forever
    Metanephros
  18. This septum divides the cloaca into a urogenital sinus and hindgut
    urorectal septum
  19. The urogenital sinus becomes these two things
    • Bladder above
    • Urethra below
  20. An abnormal closed cavity filled with fluid
    Cyst
  21. An abnormal connection between two internal organs or between an internal organ and the surface of the body
