Basioccipital synchondrosis. Part of the difference between the growth potential of synchondroseal and condylar cartilages is that growth of condylar secondary cartilage is appositional while growth of synchondroseal cartilage is interstitial. When fused the synchondrosis is often called the spheno occipital suture this is a misnomer as anatomically it is not a suture. The spheno occipital synchondrosis also known as the basiocciput synchondrosis is the synchondrosis between the basisphenoid and basiocciput bones which together when joined form the clivus.

Cranial base synchondroses are regarded as important growth centers of the craniofacial skeleton particularly the spheno occipital synchondrosis because of its late ossification and important contribution to post natal cranial base growth 1 15 18.
The base of the skull is joined to the vertebral column by a synchondrosis which is a primary growth centre and which influences even anterior regions of the skull.

Hopefully you can at least still enjoy a little laugh at this difficult time view case. The synchondrosis is composed of bipolar growth plates with a central resting r proliferating p and prehypertrophic ph zones. The presphenoid ps basisphenoid bs and basioccipital bo bones are separated by two synchondroses the intersphenoid synchondrosis iss and spheno occipital synchondrosis sos.

Normally we d prank you with this but given the current covid 19 crisis we decided just to release it straight up without trying to trick anyone.
