Anatomical terminology

Stratified columnar epithelium is a rare type of epithelial tissue composed of column shaped cells arranged in multiple layers.

Stratified columnar epithelia are found in the ocular conjunctiva of the eye, in parts of the pharynx and anus, the female's uterus, the male urethra and vas deferens. Also found in intralobular ducts in salivary glands.

The cells function in secretion and protection.
