A twofold synopsis is presented on human developmental anatomy prior to birth. The first portion of the paper focuses on conceptual perspective and the second part on factual understanding. Section 1 gives an overview of the wide assortment of somatic changes manifested in the prenatal segment of human ontogeny; it illustrates alterations occurring in number, kind, location, size, and shape of body components. Section 2 presents a chronological panorama of human anatomical modifications during prenatal life; it traces somatic changes from "zygote to embryo," from "embryo to fetus," and during "the fetal period."
