pu·bis

(pyū'bis), [TA] The term pubis (short for os pubis 'bone of the pubes') is correctly applied to the pubic bone. However, the correct Latin word for 'the pubic region' is the singular noun pubes.
The anteroinferior portion of the hip bone, distinct at birth but later becoming fused with the ilium and ischium; it is composed of a body that articulates with its fellow at the symphysis pubis, and with two rami; the superior ramus enters into the formation of the acetabulum, and the inferior ramus fuses with the ramus of the ischium to form the ischiopubic ramus.
Synonym(s): os pubis, pubic bone

pubis

[pyo̅o̅′bis] pl. pubes
Etymology: L, pubes
one of a pair of pubic bones that join at the pubic symphysis and, with the ischium and the ilium, form the hip bone. The pubis forms one fifth of the acetabulum and is divisible into the body, the superior ramus, and the inferior ramus. The external surface of the pubis serves as the origin of the adductor longus, the obturator externus, the adductor brevis, and the proximal part of the gracilis. The internal surface of the pubis forms part of the anterior wall of the pelvis, giving origin to the levator ani and the obturator internus. The pubic crest affords attachment to the rectus abdominis, the pyramidalis, and the inguinal falx. The lateral part of the superior ramus of the pubis presents the superior, the inferior, and the dorsal surfaces. The superior surface presents the iliopectineal line. The inferior ramus gives origin to the gracilis, a part of the obturator externus, the adductor brevis, the adductor magnus, the obturator internus, and the constrictor urethrae. Compare ilium, ischium.
