In the first craniofacial
variation study to look at the continent as a whole - a study 20 years in the making - Ross and co-author Douglas Ubelaker of the Smithsonian Institution examined skulls from across Mesoamerica and Central and South America.

A cell population with this genetic feature, which is not capable of producing normal tissue, instead generates a substitute of disorganized woven bone.3 FD involves often the long bones, craniofacial
bones, ribs and pelvis.
Rosen is a full-time preschool teacher, a photographer, and an entrepreneur who happened to be born with a cleft lip and palate along with other craniofacial
abnormalities that fall under a craniofacial
It is fundamental to understand concepts of craniofacial
growth and its fluctuations before any clinical diagnosis and treatment.1 Cephalometric was introduced in 1931 which led to great assistance in studying changing trends of craniofacial
growth in growing individuals.
morphology is increasingly acknowledged as an important factor in the OSAS (Banabilh et al., 2010; Albajalan et al.; Sutherland et al., 2012; Dubey et al., 2015).

Children born with craniofacial
birth defects are at high risk for being sold into human trafficking networks.
fibrous dysplasia is a form of fibrous dysplasia affecting the cranial base, involves two or more bones of the maxillofacial region and often includes the maxilla, zygoma, sphenoid, temporal bone, fronto-nasal bones and base of the skull (8,9).
When the clinician uses 2D imaging to view three-dimensional (3D) anatomical craniofacial
structures, some cephalometric structures and landmarks that do not exist in the patient appear such as mandibular symphysis, articulare, pterygoid fossa, and "key ridges." Averaging bilateral structures (such as the right and left inferior borders of the mandible) to create a unified anatomic outline (mandibular plane) results in loss of parasagittal information and, if present, asymmetry of the patient.
