GOLALIPOUR, Mohammad Jafar; JAHANSHAHI, Mehrdad  y  HAIDARI, Kamran. Morphological Evaluation of Head in Turkman Males in Gorgan-North of Iran. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2007, vol.25, n.1, pp.99-102. ISSN 0717-9502.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-95022007000100013.

Cephalometry or measurement of human head is used in identification, forensic medicine, plastic surgery, orthodontics, archeology and examine the differences between races and ethnicities. This descriptive investigation was undertaken on 198 young Turkman males to determine the cephalic index and head phenotype among them in Gorgan, North of Iran. In this study cephalic index was determined by classic cephalometric method. Mean and standard deviation of cephalic index was 80.4 + 4. Based on the cephalic index, the head shape of 42.4% of individuals were brachycephalic, 7.6% hyperbrachycephalic, 40.9% mesocephalic and 8.1% dolicocephalic. This research showed that Turkman individuals have typical brachycephalic phenotype. In comparison to other studies, we can conclude that the ethnic factor has an effective role on head phenotype in North of Iran
