Term Detail
MP term:abnormal pituitary diverticulum morphology
Synonym: abnormal craniopharyngeal canal morphology
Synonym: abnormal hypophyseal pouch morphology
Synonym: abnormal Rathke diverticulum morphology
Synonym: abnormal Rathke's pocket morphology
Synonym: abnormal Rathke's pouch morphology
MP id: MP:0003817
Definition: any structural anomaly of a tubular outgrowth of ectoderm from the stomodeum of the embryo; the outgrowth grows toward the infundibular process of the diencephalon, around which it forms a cup-like mass, giving rise to the pars distalis and pars juxtaneuralis of the hypophysis
