ABSTRACT
Estimation of stature is a prime work of Forensic Expert, which helps in identification. It is well known that estimation of stature from measurements of long bones of upper limb is accurate. In this study 107 students (55 males and 52 females) of M. R. Medical College, Gulbarga hailing from Hyderabad-Karnataka region of Karnataka are included. Ulna length (distance between most proximal point of the olecranon process and tip of styloid process of Ulna) of both right and left upper limb, height and weight of each student is measured. This study describes an equation devised for estimation of stature based on percutaneous Ulna length.
