A radiological study was done in south Indian subjects between 17 years to 20 years of age. 32 Males and 18 female's knee joint were studied. The attempt was made to differentiate the fusion between males and females and it is observed that majority of subjects were having mixed diet, with healthy stature. The fusion in the lower end of femur in males was 17 years of age to 20 years and in females it was before 17 years of age to 19 year. The fusion of upper end of tibia and fibula in males was observed between 17 to 19 years of age while in females before 17 year of age to 18 year. This study shows that there is to one year earlier fusion occurs in female than males. This study will certainly help the Anatomist, Anthropologist Orthopedician and Medico-legal expert.
