The hexahedral prism is a special case (see below).

In other prisms, all but two faces are quadrilaterals and these are called lateral faces. The other two faces, opposite one another, have the same number of sides and are called the bases. In right prisms, the lateral faces are rectangles and the bases are congruent and parallel to each other.

In a hexahedron, any pair of opposite faces may be considered the bases and the remaining four faces the lateral ones. A right hexahedral prism is a cuboid, a cube being a special case.
