'Smrčka V, Gomolčák P, Šimeček V, Salaš M, 1986: Skull Asymmetry in Prehistoric Human Skeletal Remains: A Comparative Study Documented with Clinical Cases. Anthropologie (Brno) 24, 1: 7-21'.
 
Abstract
This palaeopathological study compares two cases of skull asymmetry with three clinical cases. After describing the skeleton and its pathological changes follows a morphological comparison with the use of cephalograms (tele-X-ray pictures) according to Jarabak. The authors deal with the pathogenesis of defects, with their presence in other prehistoric finds and they discuss also differential diagnosis. As a result of our study condylar hyperplasia was recognized in one case, and anomalous muscle traction with certain features of the torticollis in the other.
