A very large, flat bone, which forms the anterior and lateral paries of the pelvis. It is curved upon itself in two opposite directions. In the first periods of life, it is composed of three portions; - the ilium, ischium, and pubis, which join each other in the acetabulum. It is articulated before with its fellow, - behind with the sacrum; and laterally with the femur.
