The Tzompantli Tlatelolco’s pre-Hispanic sample from the Instituto Nacional de Antropología e Historia in Mexico city, consisting of 185 craniums was studied to research malocclusion found in this sample. It was found Angle malocclusion Class I in 57 skulls, that showed a quite acceptable occlusal stability. It was found Angle malocclusion Class II subdivision 1 in 13 skulls; 2 showed Angle malocclusion Class II right subdivision and 2 showed Angle malocclusion Class II left subdivision. It is important to mention that neither Angle malocclusion Class II subdivision 2 nor Angle malocclusion Class III nor posterior crossbites was found. Angle malocclusion Class I was the most representative variation found in this sample.  (Rev Esp Ortod. 2010;40(3):169-180)
