During archaeological excavations in burial sites, sometimes stoned organic objects are found, in addition to human remains. Those objects might be of a different origin, depending on various factors influencing members of a community (i.e. diseases, trauma), which provides information about their living conditions. The St. Nicholas Church archaeol...

In the literature there are no unequivocal assessments of the effect of paternal age on the risk of cerebral palsy (CP). The objective of the studies was the analysis of the influence of paternal age on this risk, considering all the important risk factors and division into singleton and twin, as well as term- and preterm-born infants. The inquiry...

Castles were centres of the socio-economic life. In the last centuries castles were graduallydisappearing from the landscape of Central Europe. It was mostly due to changes in a social order, but also because of natural disasters which happened during that time. In few cases this happened so suddenly and fully that today we even can’t point out the...

Concha bullosa is a variant of the sinonasal anatomy in which the middle nasal turbinate contains pneumatized cells, which leads to turbinate enlargement. The reason for concha bullosa formation is unclear, but the variant is seen in up to half the modern population and it may predispose to paranasal sinusitis. The variant has hitherto featured lit...

The aim of this study was to evaluate whether climatic conditions impact the size of the anterior orbital opening in humans. The previous research has shown that morphology of the human orbit, a trait strongly related to the shape of the cranium, varies significantly among populations. However, the mechanisms of this variation are still debatable....

AbstrAct: Since the foramina provide important reference points to radiologists and surgeons, and because their shape and size may affect the blood supply to the cerebellum and the brainstem, the knowledge of the variation of foramina transversaria is essential from the medical point of view. The variation in the number, size and shape of foramina...

The location of the mental foramen is used in a number of maxillofacial surgical procedures and in anthropological examinations. The position of the mental foramen has been reported to vary in different ethnic groups and in different historical populations. The aim of this work was to analyse the topography of the mental foramen in mandibles from s...

Respiratory diseases have beset humanity from the earliest times. The aim of this study was to evaluate the prevalence of respiratory diseases in the inhabitants of a large medieval city. We analyzed 110 skeletons, coming from 12-17th century of individuals of either gender. In order to assess pneumatisation of paranasal sinuses and nasal septum cu...

The aim of this study was to provide the morphological and morphometric data of the supraorbital foramina or notches related to sex, side, and the climatic conditions where the population lived. It was hypothesized that the distribution of the occurrence and location of these openings depends on climatic conditions in which the population lived. Or...

Skeletons of dwarfs have been found in many archeological sites around the world. Dwarfism is a subject of scientific debate. Here we describe the skeleton of a adult female dwarf which was found in 19th century cemetery in Wroclaw, Poland. It is probably the postsection skeleton of the historically first Wroclaw Department of Pathology. The indivi...

The term ‘concha bullosa’ refers to the pneumatisation of the intranasal turbinates. The pneumatisation can occur at any level (superior, middle, inferior), but the term is typically used to describe the aeration of the middle turbinate. This case report concerns a medieval skull from Tomb Chamber Number One in St. Nicholas’s Church in Głogo´w, Pol...

The term cerebral palsy (CP) encompasses non-progressive disorders of central nervous system function, especially of upper motor neuron, due to injury during its development. Cerebral palsy is not a single disease entity but a syndrome of various symptoms having complex etiopathogenesis. The degree of central nervous system maturity at the moment o...

Flattening and lowering of the skull base in response to improper bone growth is called platybasis, and is considered a sensitive and reliable indicator of adverse living conditions such as malnutrition and disease during the prenatal period and early childhood. The degree of platybasis was assessed in three series of skulls representing geographic...

Overgrowth of bone tissue (hyperostosis frontalis intema, or HFJ) is symptomatic for the disease called Morgagni ssyndrome. The pathogenesis of this rare disorder is unknown, but it is possible that it is caused by the malfunctions in the pituitary gland. Paleopathological di­ agnoses ofHFJ are very rare but according to some authors HFJ appeared i...

The anthropological analysis was conducted on a total of 157 skeletons from Ołbin cemetery, by 13 measurements characterising the skulls morphology. Also 7 relative charac-teristics most frequently used for the description of the skeletal material were calculated. The body height and massiveness of male and female individuals were determined basing...
