The study was done in department of anatomy in the various medical colleges situated in north India over a period of 6 years total 217 well preserved dry human skull of unknown sex without any gross pathology or abnormality were selected for this study. Womarian bones are mostly seen along the lambdoid suture in 115 (52.99%) skull either one or two in number. Multiple Womarian bones were seen only in 2 skulls.
