Introduction: Supratrochlear foramen (STF) is a hole located above the trochlea of the humerus. The coronoid and the olecranon fossa are located at the distal third of the humerus, they are usually separated by a thin wall. Supracondylar spur (SCS) is a hook shaped bony projection, about 2-20mm in length, occasionally project from the anteromedial surface of the shaft of humerus about 5 cm proximal to the medial epicondyle.
Material and Method: 200 humerus bone were studied from the department of anatomy Dr SN Medical College Jodhpur Rajasthan. Bones were examined for supratroclear foramen and supracondylar spur, its dimension were recorded with vernier caliper and photographs taken.
Result: Out of 200 humeri 42 bones showing the supratroclear foramen and one bone showing the supracondylar spur.
Conclusion: The STF and SCS is of great importance in as it has clinical, anatomical, radiological and anthropological relevance they are mistakenly diagnosed as an osteolytic lesion in radiograph.
