Abstract

Conjoined twins of dicephalus type are extremely rare. We present a report of stillborn dicephalus dipus dibrachius twin. There were two complete heads on two necks, one thorax, one abdomen, and externally normal two arms and two legs. From a thorough understanding of the anatomy of these twins we can gain insight into their developmental process and devise appropriate surgical strategies for separation.
