A Horseshoe

The term "horseshoe" is used to describe the renal abnormality horseshoe kidney where there is typically a fusion of the lower poles of both kidneys. This gives the fused structure the shape of a horseshoe.


I also have used this term to describe the shape of the intra-embryonic coelom within the lateral plate mesoderm that forms during week 3 of human development.
