Ischium (sit bones) and pubic rami (thin and flat bones) form part of the anterior pelvic ring. The fracture is often caused by physical trauma, like road accident or fall from standing. They could be atraumatic too, resulting in delayed diagnosis. Osteoporosis, where bones become weak and brittle, is a risk factor, long-distance runners also being at risk.
