This Embryology category shows pages and media related to the human Macafee Embryo named after Prof. C. H. G. Macafee and described by Morton (1940)[1] (classified as Carnegie stage 5 of embryonic development that occurs during Week 2).

"The Macafee ovum was recovered from a woman aged 26 years; her last menstruation was from 20 to 26 January; coitus occurred on 22, 25 and 30 January; she was admitted to hospital on 3 February and was curetted on 5 February; the expected date of her next menstruation was 11 February. The material obtained from the curetting was cut into a diagnostic section and fifty-one serial sections separated from the former by a small interval due to loss of sections. "
