Vaginal delivery of conjoined twins: A case report
Nikhil Ranjan Rajkhowa, Swarnalata Devi
Conjoined twin is a rare presentation among all multiple pregnancies. Undiagnosed conjoined twin in the antenatal period may create a great problem for the mother as well as the baby during delivery. In the present case study, we are reporting one case of thoraco-omphalopagus which was referred to our hospital as a case of primigravida at term pregnancy with intrauterine foetal death with shoulder dystocia. Ultrasonography (USG) done in the mid trimester period, reported it as a case of single, live foetus at 26th weeks of gestations without any congenital anomaly. The diagnosis of conjoined twin was confirmed only after delivery by evisceration under anaesthesia. Although a good amount of manipulation was required to conduct the delivery, but no maternal complication was observed.
