Purpose: to detect variability of absolute and relative sizes of shin bones. Materials and methods. Parameters of large and small tibial bones (n=208) of adults aged from 22 to 89 years (118 men and 90 women) have been studied. Osteo- and anthropometry methods have been applied. Results. Sexual dimorphism, age variability and bilateral dissymmetry of morphometric parameters of shin bones compared with anthropometrical parameters have been studied. Conclusion. Absolute and relative parameters of shin bones have been determined by the type of constitution.
