Aim: To find a correlation between facial height and body height.
Materials and Method: The subject’s height was measured by a stadiometer and the facial height by a vernier calliper in 150 medical students. The data was analyzed statistically for significance and correlation.
Results: Mean body height was 167.54±9.59 cm and mean facial height was 10.77±0.76 cm. The P value was less than 0.001 and the Pearson’s coefficient was 0.34. This shows a significant positive correlation between body height and facial height.
Conclusion: The measurements of facial height can be used for estimation of body height when facial remains are brought for anthropometric examination.
