Abstract

Latin anatomical names of<I>Fossae</I>and<I>Foveae</I>in the skeleton were analyzed and compared with Japanese anatomical names for better understanding of the structures of the human body and for possible revision in the future.<BR>The conclusions were as follows:<BR>1. In general, round excavations were called<I>Foveae</I> (singular: <I>Fovea</I>), and nonround excavations were called<I>Fossae</I> (singular: <I>Fossa</I>) . Some shallow excavations for articulation and some shallow excavations with the names which indicate their contents were called<I>Foveae</I>even though they were not round.<BR>2. Each name of<I>Fossae</I>contained the word which indicates form, location or content of<I>Fossa</I>, the bone (or osseous structure) which articulates with<I>Fossa</I>, or the muscle which is attached to<I>Fossa</I>.<BR>3. Each name of<I>Foveae</I> contained the word which indicates location, content or articulation of<I>Fovea</I>, the bone (or osseous structure) which articulates with<I>Fovea</I>, or the muscle (or muscular trochlea) which is attached to<I>Fovea</I>.<BR>4. The Japanese name which corresponds to<I>Fossa canina</I>should be changed from Kenshi (canine tooth) =ka (fossa) to Kenshikin (canine muscle) = ka or Koukakukyokin (levator anguli oris muscle) =ka.<BR>5. The Japanese name which corresponds to<I>Fossa pterygopalatina</I>should be changed from Yoku (wing) = kougai (palate) = ka (fossa) to Yokutotsu (pterygoid process) = kougaikotsu (palatine bone) = ka.
