Summary:

Purpose: to reveal regularities of variability of morphometric parameters of foramen of transverse process of cervical vertebra. Materials and Methods. Method of osteometry was used to determine size of transverse process of cervical vertebra at 112 adult skeletons. Results. Sexual dimorphism of size of transverse process of cervical vertebra, topographic variability of size, form and foramen orientations were revealed. Conclusion. Foramen size prevail at men over women by 0,5-1,5 mm and has characteristic of fluctuating dissymmetry
