AbstractIntroduction: The identification of sex from skeletal remains of great medico-legal and
anthropological importance. Hip bone in this feature plays a very important role, especially
its large sciatic notch that can be detected early in embryonic development.
Materials and method: It's a cross-sectional investigation.
Results: In our study mean value of width was found as 4.49+0.44 in male while in female it
was 4.84+ 0.48. Mean depth of the sciatic notch was found as 2.78+0.38 in male and 2.96+
0.39 in female.
Conclusion: The sciatic notch was found deeper in males compared to females. Higher
reference value compared to female.
