Study of morphology and morphometry of suprarenal gland facilitates diagnostic and treatment methods for various associated clinical conditions. In the present study 120 suprarenal glands obtained from 60 cadavers were observed for their morphological and morphometric parameters along with weight of the kidneys. Statistical analysis was done by one-way analysis of variance test and Duncan’s multiple range test. Age-wise significance in weight of suprarenals and sex-wise significance in weight of kidneys, thickness of left suprarenal and thickness of left cortex and side-wise significance in length, width and thickness of suprarenal, thickness of cortex and weight of kidney were observed in the present study. The results of the present study form a data base for suprarenal morphometry in the south Indian population of a wide age range of 2 years to 64 years of life.
