Abstract

Cranial sutures and synchondrosis have long been studied by forensic scientists, human anatomists, and anthropologists for estimation of age in different population groups. Observation of the closure of spheno‑occipital synchondrosis has an important role to play in the estimation of age in the examination of unknown human remains when a skull is brought for examination. The present article reviews the studies conducted on the closure of spheno‑occipital synchondrosis and presents a few valuable considerations that would be essential for carrying out research related to closure of spheno‑occipital synchondrosis in humans.
