Abstract

Conjoined twins are rare, and most cases are thoracopagus. Parapagus conjoined twins (one body with two heads) are extremely rare. We report a case of dicephalic parapagus twins that was diagnosed in the first trimester at 10 weeks via transvaginal ultrasonography. (c) 2005 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
