The sacrum is one of the parts of the vertebral column which is formed by the fusion of five sacral vertebrae. It lies between the two hip bones contributing to the formation of the pelvic girdle. It helps in transmitting the body weight of the lower limb and supports the erect spine by providing strength and stability to the bony pelvis. It articulates superiorly with the fifth lumbar vertebra to form the lumbosacral joint and inferiorly with the coccyx to form sacrococcygeal joint. The study of morphometry of sacrum is important clinically as well as from the forensic point of view.
