On the basis of this index, skulls were classified as hyperdolichocephalic, dolichocephalic, mesocephalic, brachycephalic, and hyperbrachycephalic.
Of the skull samples analyzed, the most frequent type found was mesocephalic (N = 25), followed by dolichocephalic (N = 21), then by brachycephalic (N = 18), hyperbrachycephalic (N = 5), and hyperdolichocephalic (N = 2).
Similarly, it is interesting to observe that the extreme cephalic types hyperdolichocephalic (N = 2) and hyperbrachycephalic (N = 5) had very similar PPF, suggesting the need to analyze possible differences in major samples of these cephalic types.
