Drawing of reconstructed embryo

A drawing of one-half of the reconstructed embryo viewed at the level of the greatest diameter of the embryo. The top section of the reconstruction coincides with the photomicrograph shown in figure 3. The trophoblast is represented by the solid stippled part, whereas the essential histological details of the remainder of the embryo are shown. Note the damaged surface epithelium in juxtaposition to trophoblast.
