Human anatomy, including structure and development and practical considerations . littleinformation as to its true form. Indeed, it is only in the jjresent generation, sincethe introduction of adequate methods of hardening in situ, that this has beenlearned. The liver in general may be described as an ovoid mass which in the youngftttus nearly tills the abdomen, l)ut in the adult has the appearance of having had atleast a third of its substance scoo])ed out from below, the back haing been left intactat the right end only. The organ is therefore a thick mass in the right hypochon-drium, growing thinner to the left. The greatest diameter is transverse and thene.xt vertical. The liver is usually described as composed of five lobes, —namely, the right, the left, the lobe of Spigc/iiis, the quadrate, and the caudate. Moreproperly it consists of a right and a left lobe, separated on the superior surface bythe falciform ligament. The other lobes are subdivisions of the right lobe, the lobe Fig. 1440.

They are described withthe respective surfaces. The size varies greatly with the size of the body and frommany other causes. The transverse diameter usually nearly equals that of the cavityof the abdomen, although it often falls an inch or so short of it. It may be given atfrom 22-24 cm. (81^-91^ in.). The greatest vertical dimension or depth is about16 cm. (6J{ in.); the antero-posterior diameter 12-18.5 cm. (4^-7 ji in.). Onepeculiar form of liver occasionally met with shows great increase of the right lobe, particularlv in the vertical direction, with a want of development of the left lobe, which is thin and short (Fig.
