The phylontogenic theory proposes an original understanding of nose, sinus and midface formation and development by looking back in evolution for the first traces of the olfactory organ and then tracing its successive phyletic transformations to become part of the respiratory apparatus and finally the central point of human facial anatomy. Von Baer's, Darwin's, Haeckel's, Garstang's, Gould's and Buss' explorations of parallels between phylogeny and ontogeny help to trace the nose and midface story. The paradigm of existing parallels between ontogeny and phylogeny proves useful both in seeking to understand the holoprosencephalic spectrum of facial malformations (which represent radically different pathways of facial development after the life's tape has been started to run again) and in formulating hypotheses on chordate to vertebrate evolution. The phylontogenic theory leads to new medical hypotheses on nose and sinus diseases and opens the field of evolution and development-based medicine.

From the book reviews:

"The aim of this book is to provide an original understanding of the nose, midface and anterior skull base development based upon the evo-devo theory. ... At the end of each part, a clear and concise summary underlines the key issues. ... This original, attractive, and richly documented book will be of great value not only to all physicians and anatomists dealing with the nose and paranasal sinuses and also to those who are interested in general concept of evolution." (B. Grignon, Surgical and Radiologic Anatomy, 2014)
