SUAZO GALDAMES, Iván Claudio, PEREZ ROJAS, Francisco Javier and TORRES MUNOZ, Sebastián Rene.

Thefacial reconstruction for forensic sculpture is a skill in which, by means of the shaped one with plastic materials on a cephalic skeleton, one reproduces soft parts of the face with the intention of serving to the process of medicolegal identification. One of the most relevant information to reproduce this skill are the values of thickness tisular in certain points of the skeleton craneal. In the present study the thickness tissues are analyzed in 14 craneometrics points median and paramedian of 32 Spanish corpses by means of the introduction of needles from the facial skin. The corpses were divided in groups of agreement to sex and age to that they belong. They found significant differences in the values of thickness tisular between men and women of both groups etáreos, being observed that the men a major thickness tisular in the median points, whereas in the women the thickness measured in points turned out to be major paramedian
