Anatomy is the part of Biology responsible for the study of the constitution of multicellular organisms, that is: their structure and organization, both internal and external. This science is closely linked to Physiology, since it is responsible for the study of the organism’s functions.
It is not uncommon to find differences between anatomical parts of individuals of the same species, whether in shape or even position. When this occurs, but there is no functional impairment for the individual, we speak of anatomical variation. Age, sex and race are some factors that can lead to the emergence of these variations.
In situations in which these differences provide functional disturbances, we speak, in Anatomy, of anomalies, an example being the absence of one or more fingers.
