(redirected from os pterygoideum)

pter·y·goid pro·cess of sphenoid bone

[TA]
a long process extending downward from the junction of the body and greater wing of the sphenoid bone on either side; it is formed of two plates (lateral and medial), united anteriorly but separated below to form the pterygoid notch; the pterygoid fossa is formed by the divergence of these two plates posteriorly.
