Hi I would like to ask something anon. I have been going over the nine regions of the abdomen and a way I fully understand something is understanding the name etymology behind it. My question is regarding anatomy what is/why is there a hypochondrial region? Why is it called that? The best I could research on this is this: coral mother of the bride dresses http://medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/hypochondri… . But I am unsure if this correct. I would greatly appreciate any feedback. Thank you!
