To cumulate Chinese data and study the sexual difference of femoral condyle, 114 pairs (M51,F63) of normal adults femurs from northeast China were measured. The seven measurements include the epicondylar breadth, the length, breadth and height of lateral and medial condyles. Five indices and six sexual discriminant formulae and it′s discriminant ratios were calculated by SPSS software. Results: All the measurements except the breadth of medial condyle have a very significant sexual difference(P0.01); the five indices except the condylar breadth index were with no significant difference, The correct rate of the six discriminant formulae were within 67.54%～70.61%. Conclusion: The sexual discriminant analysis of femoral condyle is limited, if it is only depend upon the measurements.
