Symphysis Menti of the Rabbit: Anatomy, Histology, and Postnatal Development

Z. Hirschfeld, Y. Michaeli, M. M. Weinreb

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A histologic and anatomic investigation of the symphyseal region in rabbits did not reveal a bony fusion between the two halves of the mandible; these two bones are united in the anterior part by a synchrondrosis, and a definite histologic suture with interdigitating bony rugosities and interposed connective tissue, in the posterior part. Functionally, the two parts are immobile and thus constitute one bone.
