(F.) Rima, from crever, to break or crack. A crack, a cleft. The word crevasse, gercure, fissure, and rhagade are often used synonymously for small longitudinal cracks of chaps of a more or less painful character. Sometimes, crevasseis employed to designate the solutions of continuity or ruptures, which supervene in distended parts, in the urinary passages, uterus, &c.: it is then synonymous with rupture.
