Term Detail
MP term:abnormal vomeronasal organ morphology
Synonym: abnormal Jacobson organ morphology
Synonym: abnormal Jacobson's organ morphology
Synonym: abnormal organon vomeronasale morphology
Synonym: abnormal organum vomeronasale morphology
Synonym: abnormal VNO morphology
Synonym: vomeronasal organ dysplasia
MP id: MP:0002243
Definition: any structural anomaly of the tubular, crescent-sensory organ with a luminal epithelium that contains chemosensitive receptor cells with microvilli that are thought to detect pheromones and transmit signals to the remainder of the accessory olfactory system; the organ lies at the base the nasal cavity and is split into two, separated by the nasal septum
