Ilium: the upper and widest of the three bones making up the hipbone
Source: WordNet 2.1
Ilium: The ilium, or iliac bone, is the largest bone of the bony pelvis. There is one pair of iliac bones in the bony pelvis that articulate with the sacrum in the lower back at the sacroiliac joint. The pair of iliac bones is also fused with two pairs of bones in the front: the two ischium bones and the two pubic bones. The functions of the ilium or pair of iliac bones include forming a portion of the acetabulum and hip joint, providing protection to some organs of the urinary system and the reproductive system, and transferring weight from the upper body to the bony pelvis.
Parts of the ilium or pair of iliac bones include the ala, body and iliac crest and iliac tuberosity. Conditions that can afflict the ilium or iliac bones include Paget's disease of bone, arthritis, trauma, osteomyelitis, cancer, inflammation and fracture.
