Abstract This article presents the first quantitative analysis of the forensic anthropology cases that occurred in Uruguay from 1950 to 2001. This article shows the recent advances in this new branch of forensic science in Uruguay. Forensic anthropology cases have rapidly increased in Uruguay over the years--from only 1 case in 1950 to 44 cases in 2001. When human skeletal remains were found in the past they were analyzed by the local coroner who lacked experience in these types of cases and in anthrpological techniques. Therefore, in the majority of cases the skeletal remains were not identified. As the need to solve these cases' became increasingly pressing, in January of 1992, the Forensic Anthropology Laboratory at the Judicial Morgue of Montevideo was created.
