The aim of this study is to estimate the stature from nasal height, nasal depth and nasal breadth by deriving a formula. Stature is an important parameter in medico-legal examination. It happens many a times when highly decomposed or mutilated bodies or sometimes only facial remains of skull are brought for medico-legal examination stature examination is important including age ,sex and race. Each race requires its own formula for stature estimation because racial and ethnic variations exist in one population cannot be entirely applicable to other population. Stature estimation can be possible with the help of these parameters when only skull or remains of the skull are available for medico-legal examination.
