Transitional epithelium

Transitional epithelium is the bona fide urothelium of the urinary system, beginning with the kidney collecting duct and extending through the ureter to the  the urinary bladder and proximal part of the urethra. It is about 4-6 layer thick and hence a bona fide stratified epithelium. It is  a stretching epithelium and can stretch for a great length without distortion. When not stretched the basal cells are cuboidal in shape. The surface cells are larger and octoploid.
