Furthermore, in the lower pole other issues can be due to the presence of one or more lower pole anatomical variations, an increased infundibular (IF) length and a decreased IF width and angle16.
(3) The most common intracardiac defect is ventricular septal defect followed by atrial septal defect, valvular or infundibular pulmonary stenosis, tetralogy of Fallot, and left ventricular diverticulum (in the order of decreasing prevalence).
The cavum infundibular visibly extended to the distal of infundibular stalk, with a portion deep inside of the hypophysis.
Several parameters, such as the infundibular-pelvic angle (IPA), upper-lower calyx angle (ULCA), infundibular length (IL), and infundibular width (IW) were important to affect the result of the operation.
Infundibular keratosis and hyperplasia of the follicle epithelium cause occlusion of the hair follicle (89-92).
TOF is the commonest of the cyanotic congenital cardiac conditions and consists of a perimembranous VSD (80%), subpulmonary infundibular stenosis, overriding aorta and right ventricular hypertrophy (RVH).
Further, the potential existence of anatomic anomalies, such as malrotated kidney and infundibular stenosis, could make access through a single percutaneous tract challenging.
Right ventricular outflow tract repair could be performed either with simple infundibular resection or transannular patch might be required in patients with more severe outflow obstruction.
Cocaine- and amphetamine-regulated transcript (CART) is colocalized with the orexigenic neuropeptide Y and agouti-related protein and absent from the anorexigenic alpha-melanocyte-stimulating hormone neurons in the infundibular nucleus of the human hypothalamus.
described 4 different anatomical measurements (the position of the cerebellar tonsils, fourth ventricle, and infundibular recess as well as the angle between the bicommissural line and a line tangential to the floor of the fourth ventricle) in 8 patients with IH, comparing them to 89 normal controls [20].

The open comedones in Birt-Hogg-Dube are found on the face, neck, chest, and abdomen; on histopathology they represent comedonal or cystic fibrofolliculomas, demonstrating a dilated hair follicle with proliferation of the perifollicular fibrous sheath and thin epithelial strands emanating from the infundibular portion of the hair follicle [11].
