Humans have four body cavities: (1) the dorsal body cavity that encloses the brain and spinal cord; (2) the thoracic cavity that encloses the heart and lungs; (3) the abdominal cavity that encloses most of the digestive organs and kidneys; and (4) the pelvic cavity that encloses the bladder and reproductive organs.
What are the body cavities and their organs?
Body cavities and organs
Cranial cavity. The brain.
Vertebral canal/spinal cavity. Spinal cord.
Thoracic cavity. Lungs, heart, esphagus, trachea, thymus.
Abdominal cavity. Stomach, liver, spleen, gallbladder, small and large intestines, and kidneys.
Mediastinum-lungs aren’t inside of it.

What cavity are the kidneys located in?
Organs of the abdominal cavity include the stomach, liver, gallbladder, spleen, pancreas, small intestine, kidneys, large intestine, and adrenal glands.
What is the cavity of the uterus?
Abdominopelvic cavity. The abdominopelvic cavity is a body cavity that consists of the abdominal cavity and the pelvic cavity. It contains the stomach, liver, pancreas, spleen, gallbladder, kidneys, and most of the small and large intestines. It also contains the urinary bladder and internal reproductive organs.
Do people have a Coelom?
Now, some coelomates have subsequently lost their coelom but primates (actually, I believe, all vertebrates) are not among them. In humans, the coelom forms, amongst others, the pleural cavity. So, yes: humans do have a coelom that partitions into different, unconnected body cavities during development.
What is contained in the abdominal cavity?
The abdominal cavity is hardly an empty space. It contains a number of crucial organs including the lower part of the esophagus, the stomach, small intestine, colon, rectum, liver, gallbladder, pancreas, spleen, kidneys, and bladder.
