I have this sentence in my notes

Ovary is surrounded by tunica albuginea and the cortex keeps the primordial follicles. The medulla containing CT and blood vessels develop from mesonephros.

I have these words in my mind about CT

  • tunica
  • cyto- (maybe cytotrophoblast)
  • corona (no other than corona radiata so not)

What can CT be here?
