Six families, three with six children and three with four children had lateral head radiographs taken with their heads positioned in the Frankfort plane.
Comparisons were made of tracing of three aspects of the endocranial outline and the mandibular outlines (Fig. 1). It was found that resemblances between parents and their children and between children of the same family may or may not exist when the different bony outlines are compared.
