Incidence of Bregmatic bone in north Indian Skulls

Gupta Rakesh*, Usman Nema**, Zaidi S.H.H***, Singh K. Alok****.

Abstract
Background and objective: Studies of non-meteric cranial variants have been a field of considerable interest to research workers specially because of their racial and regional importance. Supernumerary ossicles (or Wormian bones) of the cranial vault are formations associated with insufficient rate of suture closure. It was reported that there exists racial variability among the incidence of these bones. Material and methods: Studies of fifty north Indian skulls of Rohilkhand Medical College Bareilly and Shri Ram MurtiSmarak Institute of Medical Sciences, Bareilly, U.P. were studied for the incidence of Bregmatic bone cranial variant. Results: In our study the incidence of bregmatic bone was 4%, which was higher than reported elsewhere. Conclusion: The findings are discussed in the light of available literature and are of considerable racial and regional significance. We believe that the knowledge of bregmatic bone is of importance to the neuroanatomists, neurosurgeons, radiologists, anthropologists, paediatricians and morphologists.[Gupta R et al NJIRM 2013; 4(2) : 79-81]

Key words: Bregmatic bone, Sutural bone, wormian bone

List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE

The List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE publication ceased with the 2008 edition. The NLM Catalog can be used to obtain a list of currently indexed MEDLINE titles; select the Limit for Current Subsets called "Currently indexed in MEDLINE."

The List of Serials Indexed for Online Users online publication is designed to provide bibliographic information for serials from which articles are indexed with the MeSH® vocabulary and cited in MEDLINE®, the backbone of the NLM PubMed® database. More detailed bibliographic data and information about indexing coverage for serials cited in MEDLINE/PubMed can be found in LocatorPlus®, the NLM online catalog, and the NLM Catalog, an Entrez database.

Journals Recently Accepted by NLM for Inclusion in MEDLINE lists titles selected by LSTRC which meets three times per year in February, June, and October. Results from those meetings appear online about six weeks after each meeting, both on the Web page and in the NLM Catalog.

Previous print versions of the List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE might be available from the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO). Information about ordering documents from GPO is available at http://www.nlm.nih.gov/pubs/pubcat.html#ordering.
