Figure 3: Segments of the coccyx. (a) In a 46-year-old female patient, all the intercoccygeal joints were fused. (b) In a 25-year-old female patient, the last intercoccygeal joint was fused. (c) In a 50-year-old female patient, the last intercoccygeal joints were fused. (d) In a 25-year-old male patient, no fusion was observed in the intercoccygeal joint. (e) In a 27-year-old female patient, no fusion was observed in the intercoccygeal joint. (f) In a 59-year-old male patient, all the intercoccygeal joints and the sacrococcygeal joint were fused (full fusion). White arrow indicates a fused intercoccygeal joint. S1 is the first sacral vertebra. S5 is the fifth sacral vertebra
