Bifid uterus --> bicornate uterus

a uterus that is more or less completely divided into two lateral horns as a result of imperfect fusion of the paramesonephric ducts; it differs from septate uterus, in which there is no external mark of separation; in uterus bicornis, the cervix may be single (uterus bicornate unicollis) or double (uterus bicornate bicollis).

Synonym: bifid uterus, uterus bicornis, uterus bifidus.
