Abstract
ESTIMATION OF STATURE FROM MAXILLO FACIAL ANTHROPOMETRY IN SOUTH INDIANS

S. Rohini*

ABSTRACT

Estimation of stature is considered as an important parameter in medico-legal and forensic examinations for establishing identity. When highly decomposed and mutilated dead bodies with fragmentary remains are brought for postmortem examination, it becomes difficult to identify the deceased. Sometimes, maxilla-facial or cephalo-facial remains are brought in for forensic and postmortem examination. In such a situation, estimation of stature becomes equally important along with other parameters like age, sex, race, etc. Anthropometry refers to the study and measurement of body dimensions. The stature was measured in standing position to the vertex in Frankfurt plane by using anthropometric rod. The maxillo-facial dimensions such total facial height and nasal height was measured by using sliding caliper. All the measurements were taken at a fixed time only, to eliminate the discrepancies due to diurnal variation. The measurements were taken three times and their mean value was taken as a final measurement. The data were analyzed using regression analysis and correlation coefficient.

Keywords: maxilla-facial or cephalo-facial.
