STUDY OF DUPLICATED HYPOGLOSSAL CANAL IN SOUTH INDIAN HUMAN SKULLS - ORIGINAL ARTICLE

Siva Nageswara Rao Sundara Setty, Raja Sekhar Katikireddi.

Abstract
Duplication of hypoglossal canal by a bony spicule is a rare phenomenon in human. The Hypoglossal nerve leaves the cranial cavity through the hypoglossal canal so the nerve might get trapped during the ossification process in the occipital bone may result in minor degrees of alterations in movements of the tongue. A total number of 50 south Indian skulls of Andhra Pradesh were studied for the duplicated hypoglossal canals because of their regional importance.

Key words: Hypoglossal canal, Duplication, Hypoglossal nerve
