Apart from the normal cranial bones, a few supernumerary/ wormian bones can be seen in dry skulls. This study intends to find the presence of wormian bones in the skulls pertaining to the coastal region of south India. Eighty-eight dry adult skulls were observed for the wormian bones. The results show that sixty-two skulls had wormian bones. Majority of these were observed at the lambdoid suture. The presence of such bones are of great clinical importance to the radiologists and the neurosurgeon.
