Explanation:
(on behalf of Erkki Pekkinen)

(Oxford on CD-ROM):
Cowperian glands: a pair of glands situated beneath, and with ducts opening
into, the urethra in male Mammalia; discovered by the anatomist William
Cowper (1666­1709). Also called Cowper’s glands.
1738 Med. Ess. & Observ. (ed. 2) IV. 496 He proves the Gonorrhœa to
affect..Cowper’s and Littré’s Glands.
1797 M. Baillie Morb. Anat. (1807) 338, I do not recollect to have seen
Cowper’s glands diseased.
1888 Rolleston & Jackson Anim. Life (ed. 2) 36 The glands representing the
Cowperian glands of the male, and known in the female as the glands of
Bartholini or Duverney.
So
Cowpe'ritis [see -itis], inflammation of Cowper’s glands.
1874 Van Buren Dis. Genit. Org. 77 Cowperitis seems to occur only in
connection with urethral inflammation.
