Department of Anatomy, S N Medical College, Navanagar,
The present study aimed to detect the possibility of sex discrimination from the humeral measurements in south Indians. One hundred normal right humeri were taken from one hundred cadavers (54 males and 46 females) who were above 20 years of age and who belonged to the south Indian population. Six measurements of the maximum length, vertical head diameter, midshaft circumference, minimum midshaft diameter, maximum midshaft diameter and epicondylar breadth were taken from each humerus. The measurements were statistically analyzed.
