The aim of the current work was to study individual, age and gender peculiarities of the distance between the middle part of back wall of pterygomaxillary fissure and sphenopalatine foramen in different stages of human postnatal ontogenesis. Cranioscopic, craniometric and variation-statistical methods were used. The results showed that the mean value of the distance between the middle part of back wall of pterygomaxillary fissure and sphenopalatine foramen in males dominated on the right side in the I adulthood period. The comparison of the same parts in similar age groups of males revealed that the parameters of the II adulthood period dominated on the left side compared to the I adulthood and elderly periods of age, but in females that dominated on both sides. The comparative analysis of gender peculiarities of that distance demonstrated its dominance on right side in the I and II adulthood periods in males and females, respectively.
