Introduction: Anthropology is the science of body sizes evaluation in living people which is applied in both medical and non-medical professions. The main purpose of the study is the evaluation of foot growth from birth to the age of 10 in folk Fars girls of Birjand and to make an archive of the data and to study symmetry based on anthropometry and dermatoglyphy.

Methods: In this study, the foot length and width, heel width, arch index and toes length have been evaluated by measuring tape and toes dermal patterns detected by inky foot print. It was carried out on 92 folk Fars girls aged from birth to 10 years old.

Results: The data evaluated by measuring of feet dimensions and dermatoglyphic traces such as toe's ridge pattern and ridge line counting. Statistics results showed that foot dimensions growth occurred through ages and would be significant in special ages.

Conclusion: This study didn't show any asymmetry related to age in anthropometric and dermatoglyphic traits in right and left feet in the populations.
