(anatomy) Of or pertaining to the gall bladder or the urinary bladder.
Origin of cystic
From Middle French cystique, from Ancient Greek κύστις (kustis)
A long cystic duct would point to a long reign of the king.
- Thyroid gland - cystic goitre.
The gland spaces vary in size and many may show marked cystic formation.
Here it undergoes a change into a cystic or " metacestode " state.
The most remarkable feature of this cystic development is the formation in many genera of several internal buds within a common cyst, each of which forms an independent inverted scolex (Coenurus, Polycercus); or these internal vesicles may bud off a large number of scolices on their external surface (Staphylocystis).
