Description

Human anatomic variation can be defined as human form that is outside of the normal. However, what is normal? This question is often very difficult to answer. For example, most would agree that having two breasts is normal but what about a woman with accessory breasts? Is this normal, abnormal or even pathological? Is it a variant or an anomaly? Sometimes, the answer to these questions is based on cultural norms or societal acceptance.
