Primate Experiments on Facial Asymmetry

July 1970
Journal of Dental Research;Jul1970, Vol. 49 Issue 4, p847
Academic Journal
A primate model was developed for testing the response of a normal structure to an abnormal environment. Facial asymmetry after experimental maxillary displacement did not extend to the zygoma. Significant changes occurred in the development of the maxilla, the nasal cavity, and the position and occlusion of the dentition.

    Morphological diversity in the form of multiple zygomaticofacial (ZF) foramina was studied in 165 dry, unsexed adult human skulls. Zygomatic bones revealed variation in the number of foramina on their orbital and facial aspects. These were absent in 72 (21.8%) sides. A single ZF foramen was seen...

    The Treacher Collins syndrome (TCS) is a dominant, autosomal craneofacial disorder. Its incidence is 1 in 25,000 to 50,000 live births. It's caused secondary to mutations in the gen that codifies the treacle protein. Mala hipoplasia and anti mongoloid folds characterize it. The diagnosis is made...
