It is shown by many authors that the determining of the process of the skeletal maturity was useful for a indicator of body maturity. Certain stage are given to the maturity process of the distal epiphyses of radius, ulna, carpals, metacarpals and proximal phalanges.
The divided each stage is numbered and each number represents the skeletal score, and skeletal age is determined by those score.
Seventy-nine cerebral palsied children ranging in age from two years to eighteen years are investigated.
We made comparison of skeletal age and chronological age between cerebral palsy and normals.
There was retardation of skeletal age in 46% distal epiphyses of radius and ulna, 58% of carpals, 59% of metacarpals and 44% of phalanges.
