The auricular length, auricular base length and auricular width were measured in 94 human fetuses with crown-rump (CR) lengths ranging from 49 mm (approximately 11 weeks of gestational age) to 250 mm (approximately 31 weeks of gestational age). The three measurement values showed linear increases as the CR length increased, suggesting that they are useful parameters to indicate intrauterine growth. The measurement values also suggested that the mandibular and hyoid derivatives did not grow independently, but did grow with maintaining a certain relationship.
