    Introduction: The sphenoid bone is an unpaired bone of the neurocranium. It is arranged in the norma basalis part of skull toward the front, before the temporal bone, and the basilar part of the occipital bone. This bone accidentally presents varied morphology so its description and denomination are a topic of discussion. The aim of the study is to determine the morphological and morphometrical analysis of sphenoidal tubercle with reference to the spine of sphenoidal bone. Materials and Methods: The study was performed in 50 dry human skull bones of unknown sex and without any gross abnormality was collected from the Department of Anatomy, Saveetha Dental College, Chennai, for evaluation. Anteroposterior, transverse, and vertical diameter at the base of sphenoidal tubercle were measured. Values are expressed as mean ± standard deviation. Results: The maximum anteroposterior diameter of the sphenoidal tubercle is 6.33 mm and the minimum is 1.55 mm. The maximum vertical diameter of the sphenoidal tubercle is 6.71 mm and the minimum is 0.87 mm. The maximum transverse diameter of the sphenoidal tubercle is 7.11 mm and the minimum is 0.93 mm. Conclusion: Due to the localization of the sphenoid tubercle in close proximity to the maxillary artery groove and maxillary nerve groove, it serves as an anatomical landmark that should be considered as a parameter for the surgical approach of the infratemporal fossa and the neurovascular elements contained in it.
