Doubling of a part.

duplicitas

(1) The doubling of a body part.
(2) An obsolete term for conjoined twins, see there (popularly known as Siamese twins).

The obsolete term duplicitas is defined as the apparent doubling of body segments; the root -pagus is preferred, which carries a prefix according to attached region—as in craniopagus, thoracopagus and pygopagus (for conjoined twins who are joined at the head, chest and hips, respectively).

duplicitas
