Frontal bone

May 2017


Definition

The frontal bone is a bone of the skull and the human face. It is one of the bones that are present in only a single copy in the human body. It constitutes a median bone that works alongside many other skull bones, such as the ethmoid, sphenoid, parietal, nasal, jaw, zygomatic, and lacrimal bones. It is also from the frontal bone that both frontal sinuses emerge.
