Developmentally, vertebrae form from the sclerotome portions of the somites, which are derived from paraxial mesoderm. The transverse processes of cervical vertebrae are directed laterally and slightly forward.
The paraxial mesoderm in the trunk is transiently organized into tissue blocks alongside the neural tube, known as somites.
The classic cervical vertebral abnormalities of KFS are well known and associated with derangements within the signaling pathways during paraxial mesoderm differentiation and somite development [12].
During early embryogenesis, the formation of skeletal muscle begins when the paraxial mesoderm segments form somites in response to signals from the notochord, neural tube, and surface ectoderm [4].
