Estimation of sex thus, is an importantexercise in establishing the biological profile of unknownhuman remains in medico-legal investigations. Sex can be estimatedwith high levels of accuracy from pelvis, skull, femur andother long bones. Besides, studies have been conducted on sex estimationfrom other bones of the human body such as clavicle,sternum, patella and hand and foot bones which may help in determinationof sex in the absence of other more sexually dimorphicbones of the human skeleton
