Nabanita Deka, Aushima Vijay
One of the most enthralling congenital malformations which always remain a curiosity for the general public is conjoined twins. More commonly called as Siamese twins, they are veiled in mystery right from their conception and genesis to prognosis of severe morbidity and mortality. A primigravida at 32 weeks gestation with thoraco-omphalopagus twins was delivered at our hospital by elective lower segment caesarian section (LSCS). Making an early diagnosis by ultrasound will help the parents to opt for pregnancy termination.
