The primary method of diagnosis in craniofacial deformity patient is used by gross inspection. So we studied the frontal photometric measurements for maxillofacial Korean normals 44 male and 48 female ages 19 to 20 years were selected from a group of 92 healthy Kyung Hee university students in Seoul.. The photograph were taken with the subject sitting in head position parallel with interpapillary plane to the floor. During taking pictures, facial anallyser by Obwegeser(Martin Co., Germany) was used for correct measurements. The results of this study was followed. 1. In the linear measurements, all values of males were longer than those of females but middle third height and lower third height, facial width and nasal width of males were longer than those of females in P < 0.05 2. The difference between right and left angular and linear measurement was insignificant. 3. In the horizontal facial ratios, interocular distance and nasal width were longer and mouth width were smaller in korean than in american(P < 0.05). 4. In the vertical ratios, korean women have shorter facial height of lower third comparing with facial height of middle third than american(P < 0.05). 5. In the vertical facial ratios, korean have smaller proportion below the stomion in the lower third department than american. (P < 0.05).
