Flashcards in 3.2 Development of the Nose and Face Deck (20):
1

What is the neural crest?

Specialised population of cells that originates within the neuroectoderm

2

From where do the facial primordia originate?

1st pharyngeal arch and FNP

3

Where does the facial skeleton originate from?

Neural crest of 1st pharyngeal arch

4

Where do the muscles of mastication originate from?

Mesoderm of 1st pharyngeal arch

5

Where do the muscles of facial expression originate from?

Mesoderm of 2nd pharyngeal arch

6

What areas of the face is developed from the FNP?

Forehead, bridge of nose, nose, philtrum

7

What areas of the face is developed from the maxillary prominence of the 1st pharyngeal arch?

Cheeks, lateral upper lip, lateral upper law

8

What areas of the face is developed from the mandibular prominence of the 1st pharyngeal arch?

Lower lip and jaw

9

Describe how the nose develops

Endoderm thickens to produce nasal placodes on the FNP
Nasal placodes sink to form nasal pits
Medial and lateral nasal prominences (raised edges) form on either side of the pits
Maxillary prominences grow and push nasal prominences together in the midline
Two medial nasal prominences fuse in the midline

10

What forms due to the fusion of the nasal prominences?

Intermaxillary segment

11

What forms from the intermaxillary segment?

Philtrum, 4 incisors, Primary palate

12

How is the secondary palate formed?

Formed from palatal shelves derived from the maxillary prominences

13

How does a lateral cleft lip form?

Failure of fusion of medial nasal prominence and maxillary prominence

14

How does a cleft lip and a cleft palate form?

Failure of fusion of medial nasal prominence and maxillary prominence as well as failure of palatal shelves to meet in the midline

15

Describe how the eyes develop

Outpocketing of the forebrain
Overlying ectoderm differentiates to become optic placodes
The optic placode and underlying space (optic vesicle) invaginate and pinches off
As the facial prominences grow the eyes are pushed to the anterior of the face

16

Where is the retina derived from?

Forebrain

17

Where does the external auditory meatus develop from?

1st pharyngeal cleft

18

Where do the auricles develop from?

Proliferation of the 1st and 2nd pharyngeal arches

19

What are the physical abnormalities found in a person with fetal alcohol syndrome?

Short nose, thin upper lip, small head, smooth philtrum, small eye openings

20

Why is drinking alcohol whilst pregnant damaging for the fetus?

Neural crest migration and development of the brain is very sensitive to alcohol.
