Abstract : In this study, a series of measurements and relationships of the cranial base and facial skeleton from right lateral and posterior-anterior cephalometric radiographs of each occipitalized and selected normal skulls is obtained. This collection of data is subjected to statistical analyses comparing the group bearing the cranio-vertebral anomaly with the group of selected normal skulls. Correlation data between measurements within each group are computed to investigate cause-and-effect relationships.
