Abstract: Background:The foramen magnum is the large opening in the base of the skull through which the spinal cord exits the cranial vault.The foramen magnum is situated in the occipital bone, and forms around the base of the brainstem (the medulla oblongata).The foramen magnum in humans is formed by the fusion of the four individual parts of the occipital bone. Aim: Understanding the anatomy and morphometry of the foramen magnum in different skulls of South Indian population. Objective: To determine the exact range of measurement, the variations, area and inequality of size are seen in foramen magnum . Materials and methods: 50 dry skulls will be examined for the foramen magnum in the occipital bone of the cranium and large opening at the base of the skull base. The type of foramen magnum will be classified according to its shape. Length and width will be noted. Reason for this project::The morphometric evaluation of foramen magnum is clinically interesting because of its relation with its contents. These vital structures that pass through it may suffer compression in cases of achondroplasia, foramen magnum brain herniation and atlanto-occipital fusion. Therefore the topic will be studied.
Keywords: Foramen magnum,Base of the skull,Occipital bone,,vertebral arteries.
