Fig. 4. A Diagrammatic Representation of a Human Embryo, about 3.5 mm Long

Showing the Effect of the Expanding Amnion upon the Yolk-sac and Body-stalk.

The amnion has now completely encircled the embryo, and with its increase in size has crowded the yolk-sac away. Outside the amnion the yolk-sac and body-stalk are separate structures; inside the amniotic ring they are fused, forming the umbilical cord. The amnion covers the cord as far as the embryo. It is probable that the tension produced on the yolk-Stalk by the amnion contributes to the primitive kink in the alimentary canal.
