Basle Nomina Anatomica
Pronunciation: bohs′el or bahl nō′mi-nă an-ă-tom′ka
Definition: The name adopted in 1895 in Basel, Switzerland (French spelling, Basle) by members of the German Anatomical Society that met to compile a Latin nomenclature of anatomic terms. Revisions of the resulting nomenclature were published at intervals until, in 1955 in Paris, the international membership of the Congress of Anatomists adopted a modification of the Basle Nomina Anatomica terminology. That modification dropped the reference to the original meeting place.
