Prominentia laryngea

Prominentia laryngea: The prominence of the larynx, more commonly known as the Adam's apple. This familiar feature in front of the neck is due to forward protrusion of the largest cartilage of the larynx. It takes its name from the story that a piece of the forbidden fruit stuck in Adam's throat. The prominent cartilage is the thyroid cartilage. It tends to enlarge at adolescence, particularly in males. The Latin for Adam's apple is "pomum Adami." This may have been a mistranslation of the Hebrew "tappuach ha adam" which also means male bump.
