Human androgens like testosterone and oestrogen are responsible for sexually dimorphic features like more musculo-skeletal system in men. Testosterone affects a number of facial features. In pubertal males, a high testosterone/oestrogen ratio is thought to facilitate the lateral growth of cheek bones, mandible and chin and the forward growth of the bones of eyebrow ridges and lengthening of the lower face leading to more robust face shape. The data for the present study was collected from the 283 individuals of both sexes, which includes 144 mals and 139 female. Considering the present study in Bengalee Hindu caste population. In another hand it is easily highlited that orbital linear measurements (Burley et al, 2003; Debopriya, 2008) which clinically represents the measurement for assessing ocular Hypertelorism, are strongly correlated but in case of male 2D:4D ratio as a proxy measurement for prenatal androgen level is not correlated with Orbital region linear measurements which denotes that prenatal hormonal environment do not affect the orbital measurements.
