In the clinical, coccygeal vertebrae related fractures, luxations, tumor, coccygodynia are encountered. However, there are a very few studies on the anatomy of vertebrae coccygea in the literature. Computerized Microtomographs (Micro-CT) allow a spatial resolution of less than 10 micrometers (μm), enabling the three-dimensional structures of anatomical formations to be displayed in a very detailed manner and to make necessary measurements on these formations. Very few studies have been found in the literature with coccygeal vertebrae examined with Micro-CT. In our study, the lateral deviation angle for vertebrae coccygea, angle between vertebrae, trabecular structure of vertebral joint with sacrum, dimensions of coccyx, the number of coccygeal vertebrae, dimensions of vertebrae, the presence of transverse processes in vertebrae and its angulation and length were examined with Micro-CT. All these studies were evaluated separately for women and men. The purpose of the study is to make a contribution to the literature by examining the anatomy and trabecular structure of vertebra coccygeae, which is not much studied in the literature. It is thought that this study will guide clinicians in the evaluation and treatment of pathologies related to vertebrae coccygeae.
