Since widespread applications of microsurgery are being employed for aneurysms, clival tumors, etc., precise knowledge of the skull base measurements has become vital, and a study of 307 adult skulls - 130 female and 177 male - has been undertaken. Measurements were made between the landmarks chosen in accordance with the study of Lang in 1983 and our average values were similar to his series, being closer to his female data. There was no significant difference between the right and left sides of the skull.
