The epiphyses are very distinct, and do not unite with the centra till the animal is quite adult.
The terminations of all three of the leg bones are formed by epiphyses.
The epiphyses are prominent, and so are the neural spines and to a less extent the metapophyses.
The epiphyses were slightly thickened; there were pain in the limbs, languor, and pallor.
It is a common belief that separation of the epiphyses occurs only in infants and young children, and not in the scurvy of adults.
At the same time the epiphyses swell very rapidly, and are painful.
Each of the five digits consists of a long metatarsal with epiphyses at both ends, and of a variable number of phalanges.
This causes osteo-myelitis, which frequently results in a separation of the epiphyses.
The epiphyses are enlarged to a variable degree, resembling the epiphyses typical of human rickets.
epiphyses are fully developed in Halitherium, and traces occur in Manatus.
