Dr. Sonal Anand Talokar [2] | Dr. Saniya Harish Lade [3]

Abstract: Various studies have clearly demonstrated sexual dimorphism in human skeleton. Therefore the purpose of the study is to compare morphometric measurements of important bony landmarks on skull for determination of sex. Adult 150 (89 male and 61 female) skulls were studied for seven parameters. Out of 7 parameters maximum cranial length, maximum cranial breadth, cranial height, maximum cranial circumference, biasterionic breadth, bregma-lamda length were found to be significant. The result are similar to those obtained by previous workers.

Keywords: skull, sexual dimorphism, cranium, morphometry, anthropometric parameters
