The three-dimensional reconstructions of the human coccygeal bodies were undertaken using semi-thin serial sections which were cut from the tissue specimens taken from the ventral parts of the tip of the coccyges of four patients. The coccygeal bodies were observed in the form of convoluted, irregular helical tubes. The diameters of the coccygeal bodies in serial sections were measured and a statistical analysis performed. The lumens of the coccygeal bodies were not observed in the twisted parts of the tissue specimens. Depending upon to the irregular courses of the lumens and their lack of appearances in the twisted areas, we are unable to show the three-dimensional reconstructions of the lumens of the coccygeal bodies. In conclusion, this is the first study reporting the three-dimensional reconstruction of the contours of the coccygeal body. These type of studies, which were done by using serial sections will be very helpful for the understanding of the little known organs of the human body.
