Ossification of various ligaments in the body may result in clinical symptoms due to compression of neighbouring structures and complications in regional surgeries. This case reports of a dry skull that presented with two rare bony anomalies caroticoclinoid and petrosphenoid bridges. Simultaneous occurrence of both these anomalies is a unique morphological event with neurovascular implications. Considering the fact that majority of textbooks in anatomy do not provide a detailed description of these entities, the present report is very much relevant for neurosurgeons and radiologists in day to day practice.
