Growth trend in transverse cephalic curvature index

  • P. Dash Sharma
Original Articles


The growth trend of the Transverse Cephalic Curvature Index has been studied up to adulthood in 217 male and 137 female Punjabi children. Except for some variations observed in the growth curves at certain ages, which may be due to small number of children in individual age groups or due to individual variation, the findings in this study document an increase in the mean value of the index with the increase in age, with some limitations.
