    Aim: The aim of the study was to observe the occurrence, anatomy and clinical significance of caroticoclinoid foramen and inter clinoid bar in the dry human skulls available in the Department of Anatomy in Saveetha Dental College. Materials and Methods: A total of 50 dry adult human base skulls that are available in the Department of Anatomy, Saveetha Dental College are used for the study. Digital Vernier caliper was used in taking the measurements. Results: The incidence of caroticoclinoid foramen and inter clinoid bar is 58% and 0%, respectively. There is no incidence of complete and contact type caroticoclinoid foramen. However, the results tend to vary in different regions and population of the world. As only a limited number of skulls were considered for the study, the result might vary with consideration of more number of skulls. Conclusion:The clinical significance is that the presence of caroticoclinoid foramen and inter clinoid bar may serve as obstacles while approaching anterior clinoid process in the regional neurosurgery, especially when there is an aneurysm of internal carotid artery. Therefore, detailed anatomical knowledge is required while operating in this region.
