Diagnosis of male dicephalus parapagus dibrachıus conjoined twins discordant for anencephaly at early weeks of pregnancy. Case report

P. Kumru, O. Demirci,


Abstract: We report a rare case of male dicephalus conjoined twins discordant for anencephaly diagnosed by ultrasound at 13 weeks. The prognosis of conjoined twins depends on type of fusion and presence of associated structural defects. High incidence of poor prognosis in postnatal, termination of pregnancy recommended in cases where dicephalic twins are detected early in utero, especially if one of them has discordance for anencephaly.
