BNA -->
Basle Nomina Anatomica
medical dictionary

The name adopted in 1895 in Basel, Switzerland (French spelling, Basle) by members of the German Anatomical Society which met to compile a Latin nomenclature of anatomical terms. Revisions of the resulting nomenclature were published at intervals until, in 1955 in Paris, France, the international membership of the Congress of Anatomists adopted a modification of the Basle Nomina Anatomica terminology. That modification dropped the reference to the original meeting place.

See: Nomina Anatomica.
