Abstract

Holoacardius acephalus is a rare anomaly occurring in twin pregnancy. This case was an amorphic monstrous mass with only lower limb buds showing five digits and no definite human form unlike those reported in the Indian literature which either showed the presence of other body parts like thorax, abdomen and head and neck structures or were totally undifferentiated. The other twin had intra uterine growth retardation. This case came to the hospital in labour. As this condition can be recognised in the antenatal period, diagnosis of this anomaly is important for better perinatal outcome.
