Craniofacial area is a part of the human body which undergoes the greatest changes during development and is characterized
by uneven growth. External and internal factors affect the growth and development of craniofacial structures.
They are responsible for the occurrence of specific craniofacial characteristics in different races or populations within the
same race. The present study investigates the possible differences of the basic head and face shapes between the Croatian
and Syrian populations. The sample included 400 subjects of both sexes aged 18–24 years and was divided into a Croatian
and a Syrian group with 200 subjects each. Six variables defined according to Martin and Saller were measured by
standard anthropometric instruments19. The results of the study demonstrated statistically significant differences between
our subjects in all variables except face width. The dolichocephalic head type and the mesoprosopic face type were
predominant in the Croatian population, while the brachycephalic head type and the euryprosopic face type dominated in
the Syrian population.
