The iliac crest is the most prominent part of the ilium, the largest of the three bones that make up the bony pelvis or hip bone.

It is the curved part at the top of the hop that sits close to the skin and forms the wing-like part of the pelvis on which a person will sometimes rest their hands.

Pain in the iliac crest can also radiate to other areas of the body, including the back, abdomen, and groin. The location where it is felt depends on what is causing the pain.
