The perineum is supported by the pelvic and urogenital diaphragms and the perineal body; the perineal body (also referred to as the central tendon) is a pyramidal fibromuscular structure located at the junction of the urogenital and anal triangles, resulting from the convergence of several pelvic muscles.
A line drawn just anterior to the ischial tuberosities divides the perineum into two areas: an anterior region called the urogenital triangle and a posterior region called the anal triangle (Figure 2).
