List of human anatomical features

The major systems of the human body are:

The detailed list of human anatomical features below is adapted from the table of contents of the 1918 public domain edition of Gray's Anatomy. Please make links, re-format, and bring this list up to date as appropriate.

Please note: This list is intended to stimulate the creation of original up-to-date articles on human anatomy in Wikipedia, not to start a data dump of Gray's Anatomy. The 1918 Gray's Anatomy articles are very out of date, and large advances have been made in both gross and microscopic anatomy since 1918.
