Abstract

Parasitic conjoined twins are rare anomalies of monochorionic monoamniotic twins. We report a case of ischiopagus tetrapus conjoined twin with single head, and absent anterior abdominal wall. Due to its variable anatomy no definite treatment plan is available. Early prenatal diagnosis assists in management.
