The cellular mechanisms are well described and are roughly divided into the following phases: (a) Establishment of the shell-founder cell; (b) Invagination then evagination of the shell field; (c) Successive expansion of the shell field to cover the entire embryo at the veliger stage; and (d) Secretion of the shell matrices and calcification of the shell field [34].
The pineal gland is localised in a third ventricle evagination called the pineal recess, and it maintains direct contact with the CSF.
The sciatic nerve involvement has been associated with the "pocket sign" related to a small peritoneal evagination often situated on the posterior part of the pelvis drawn downward the greater sciatic notch (31).
