Yet this wonderful appliance had neither tongue nor teeth, larynx nor pharynx.
It is just cephalad to the anterior end of the pharynx and to the hypophysis.
Thus the opening from the larynx into the pharynx is closed.
No foreign body was palpable with the finger in the pharynx.
Just back of the pharynx is the esophagus which leads to the beginning of the stomach.
