Medical Definition of Mammary fold

1. Bandlike thickening of ectoderm in the embryo extending on either side from just below the axilla to the inguinal region; in human embryos, the mammary glands arise from primordia in the thoracic part of the ridge, the balance of the ridge disappearing; in some lower mammals which give birth to a litter of young, several milk glands develop along these lines. Synonym: mammary fold, milk line, milk ridge. (05 Mar 2000)
