Ossa wormiana-A morphological study

Author(s): Rani Nallathamby, Meril Ann Soman


Goethe’s osscicles or Wormian bones are islands of small bone tissue that were accidentally intercalated in the cranium sutures which were formed out of additional ossification centers which had no relation with the regular ones. These bone tissues are studied by various researchers who succeeded in associating them with various central nervous system disorders, acknowledging their presence to be important in the fields of neurosurgery, radiology and anthropology.
