In this paper, concepts of quasi-normal and dually quasi-normal relations are introduced. Characterizations of these relations are obtained. In addition, particulary we show that the anti-order relation ${\nleqslant}$ ($={\leqslant}^C$) is a (dually) quasi-normal relation if and only if the partially ordered set (X, ${\leqslant}$) is an anti-chain.
