    Aim: The aim of this study was to estimate the incidence of foramen of Huschke in dry human adult skulls. Materials and Methods: The study was made on 60 dry human adult skulls that are collected from the Department of Anatomy in Saveetha Dental College and Hospitals, Chennai. The present study is based on direct observation of the dry human adult skulls in the tympanic part of temporal bone for the presence of the foramen. The observation was also made if the foramen is present unilaterally or bilaterally. Estimation of the foramen of Huschke is not been done based on sex difference. Results: The observation of 60 dry adult human skulls showed the presence of foramen of Huschke in just 5% of skulls, which obviously shows that the presence of this foramen is very rare. Of 120 temporal bones, only five of these foramens were observed. Of these 60 skulls, two skulls showed the presence of foramen of Huschke bilaterally. One skull showed the presence of foramen of Hushke unilaterally. The presence of foramen of Huschke with sex difference is not estimated. Conclusion: A knowledge about foramen of Huschke or foramen tympanicum may be useful in treating patients with TMJ herniation.
