    Aim: The aim of the study was to analysis of morphometric and morphology parameters of foramen magnum. Objective: The study was conducted on completely ossified adults 92 dry skulls. Materials and Methods: The study was conducted on 50 South Indian skulls (25 females and 25 males). The skulls were free from fracture or other deformities. Morphometric analysis on the occipital bones was conducted with Vernier calipers graduated to the last 0.01 mm. Discussion: The area of the foramen magnum was calculated using the formula derived by Radinsky’s and Teixeria, and hence, mean and standard deviation was calculated. Radinsky’s formula: A=1/4× π×w×h. Teixeria’s formula: A=p×[{(h+w)}/4]sq. Conclusion: The length, breadth, and area of foramen magnum are found to be higher in males than female.
