The purpose of the article is to reveal stereotopometric characteristics of typical variability of angular parameters of cerebral skull and their connection with basilar angle. Material and methods.: Stereotopometric research of 100 skulls of adults aged 22-60 years was performed by means of craniostereobasiometer. Stereotopometric method was used to study the coordinates of craniometric points to three perpendicular planes, which have allowed determining size of a basilar angle and angular parameters of the cerebral skull. Resu/fs.Craniotypes by means of size of a basilar angle — flexi-, medio- and platibasilar types of skull base have been established. Comparative analysis of statistics of creniometric points and angular parameters of a cerebral skull at basilar craniotypes has been carried out. Conclusion. It is established that stereotopometric variability of cerebral skull angles, different direction and the degree of their connection with basilar angle depend on the skull base type.
