Abstract

Conjoined twins are a rare and often catastrophic obstetrical event. Although ultrasonography is widely used in the diagnosis of conjoined twins, it may fail to demonstrate the details in fetuses with complex anomalies, especially during late pregnancy. We present an omphalopagus conjoined twins case evaluated by HASTE magnetic resonance imaging, which showed the conjunction site and cranial anomalies, and aided antenatal counseling and neonatal surgical planning.
