Abeer Abdel-wahab Ibrahim Sharaf El-Din, Shereen Sobhy Elkholy, Mohamed Ibrahim Yousef.

Objective : the aim of this study was to assess the correlation between some upper limb measurements and personal stature and to set regression equations for stature estimation in Egyptian population.

Subjects and methods: This study was conducted on 500 healthy Egyptian Arab volunteers, comprising 250 males and 250 females, from the companions of cases referred to radiological department, Benha University Hospitals, Benha Faculty of Medicine, Egypt. Nine anthropometric measurements were recorded for 500 healthy Egyptian Arab volunteers which are: the stature, arm length, forearm length, hand length, hand breadth and four fingers (index, middle, ring and little fingers) lengths were measured.

Results:A positive significant correlation between stature and all measurements were observed in both sexes. Regression models are constructed to estimate stature on the basis of all measurements for males and females.

Conclusion: This study provides new forensic standards for stature estimation from the upper limb measurements of Egyptian population.

Key words: Forensic sciences, forensic anthropology, personal identification, stature estimation, upper limb, Egyptian population.
