Kiran Fatima Farooq, Muhammad Hamid Akram.

Abstract
Objective
To correlate sciatica with patients’ height.
Patients and Methods
This descriptive cross sectional study was conducted at Military Hospital Rawalpindi from October 2005 to April 2006. One hundred patients presenting with either unilateral or bilateral sciatica were studied. Their height, weight, age and gender were recorded.

Conclusion
Sciatica is more common in tall people.

Key words: Sciatica, bilateral sciatica, sciatic neuralgia.
