Abstract

Introduction: Sex evaluation from the skeletal remains is of very much important for medicolegal aspects in the field of medical science. On the basis of previous researcher, I have been planned to verify the existrnal data and establish them in reference to population in and around Lucknow. With the help of this study we were distinguishes the male and female sternum bone in children. Subjects and Methods: The technique described by Ashley GT -1956b was used for measurement of sternum. Each linear measurement has been taken thrice on the anatomical position of the sternum using Mitutoyo-digital vernier calipers to the nearest millimeter with precision of 0.01 mm. Results: Discussion: The previous researchers told that the sternum has distinguished in different zone of India, and it is shorter than European country. Our findings of manubrium were 49.45±3.45 mm for male and 44.47± 5.79 mm for female children respectively. The study done by previous researcher was provided full support to our present finding. Conclusion: The comparison of mean length of manubrium, mesosternum and sternum between 2 to 15 yrs, female and male sternum between two groups, significantly different and higher length of manubrium, mesosternum and sternum in males as compared to females children.
