Whereas, posteriorly growth is due to interstitial growth at spheno-occipital synchondrosis.Cranial base center, sella turcica, forms anterior limb (from sella to nasion) and posterior limb (from sella to basion) of cranial base; forming an angle of 130o - 135o at sella.
Reported articulations include synchondrosis, syndesmosis (O'Neal et al., 1995; Azurza & Sakellariou, 2001; Chiodo et al., 2002) and "some combination of both" (Burnett & Case).
The persistent neurocentral synchondrosis results from failure of the cartilage segments to differentiate into bone.
Interestingly, one report found that the persistence of the spheno-occipital synchondrosis, aggravated by the coexistence of basilar invagination, resulted in stenosis at the foramen magnum [20].
MRI disclosed the presence of an inflammatory process, bone fragment covered with cartilage, and what appears to be a degenerative synchondrosis as a consequence of posteromedial impingement (Figure 3).
The vertebra of children are unique in that they have growth centers of the neurocentral synchondrosis and both superior and inferior aspects of the vertebral body which can result in growth plate fractures and injuries from trauma, similar to growth plates of long bones.
Os trigonum which persists separately in 7-14% of the population, has cartilaginous synchondrosis between the ossicle.

Ranly13 said synchondrosis closed by ossification cannot be reacted again by injecting GH which indicates that GH treatments for short-statured children should start before the spheno-occipital synchondrosis closes to ensure more growth promotion effects.
