In geometry, the truncated great dodecahedron is a nonconvex uniform polyhedron, indexed as U37. It is given a Schläfli symbol t{5,5/2}.

## Related polyhedra

It shares its vertex arrangement with three other uniform polyhedra: the nonconvex great rhombicosidodecahedron, the great dodecicosidodecahedron, and the great rhombidodecahedron; and with the uniform compounds of 6 or 12 pentagonal prisms.

This polyhedron is the truncation of the great dodecahedron:

The truncated small stellated dodecahedron looks like a dodecahedron on the surface, but it has 24 faces, 12 pentagons from the truncated vertices and 12 overlapping as (truncated pentagrams).
