Beschreibung

The pharynx is that part of the digestive tube which is placed behind the nasal cavities, mouth, and larynx.

It is a musculomembranous tube, somewhat conical in form, with the base upward, and the apex downward, extending from the under surface of the skull to the level of the cricoid cartilage in front, and that of the sixth cervical vertebra behind.
