Previous investigations of prenatal development of the human cranium have not identified the sequence of its ossification. The purpose of the present study was to elucidate the pattern of skeletal maturity of the cranial bones in the midsagittal region anterior to the foramen magnum. This study is based upon a radiographic and histochemical investigation of midsagittal tissue blocks of the cranial bases of 73 human fetuses derived from the first half of the prenatal period. A marked regularity… CONTINUE READING
