Method: The study was conducted in Department of Anatomy, G.S.V.M. Medical College, Kanpur.300 macerated dry adult human skulls of north Indian population belonging to both sexes were selected. Numbers of accessory IOF was determined by direct inspection. Result:The present study found 10.7% of skulls have accessory IOF.
