Introduction: Knowledge about the normal morphometric measurements helps the physician in identifying if the organ is normal or unusual while performing an autopsy. However, the weight of organs probably can be influenced by anthropometric measurements of the individual. The study aims to determine the volume, weight and size of normal pancreas, spleen and kidney and its correlation with anthropometric parameters.
Materials and Methods: The study was a retrospective study conducted in the department of anatomy and forensic, Rajiv Gandhi Institute of medical sciences, Ongole, a tertiary care teaching hospital.
Results: There was correlation between all the anthropometric measurements and organ morphometric measurements in spleen and pancreas (p<0 xss=removed>
Conclusion: The anthropometric measurements can be a good proxy for the organ measurements.
Keywords: Anthropometry, Organ measurements, Spleen, Kidney, Pancreas.
