Craniofacial lesions involve the Neurocranium region (rounded framework that involves the brain region and inner ears, which correspond to the upper and postero-inferior part of the skull) and the Viscerocranium region (related to the respiratory, digestive and sensory systems, which is correlated with the anterior part of the skull, corresponding to the bones of the face). The Neurocranium is composed of 8 Bones, Front; Occipital; Parietals; thunderstorms; Sphenoid and Ethmoid. The Viscerocanium is composed of 14 Bones, Inferior Nasal Shells; Lacrimal Bones; vomer; Jaws; Nasal Bones; Palatines; Zygomatics and Mandible. Thus, figures 1, 2 and 3 show the Bones of the Neurocranium and Viscerocranium.
