ABSTRACT

Conjoined twins is an unique anomaly of multiple gestation and has been a fascinated entity both for general population and medical fraternity. It is seen in 10.25 per million births. 75% of them occur in females. These are associated with severe mortality and morbidity. Thoracopagus is a common type where fusion starts at chest and also involves the heart. Autopsy in case of conjoined twins plays a vital role in deciding the type of fusion of the body and also the status of heart, the great vessels and liver etc. which they share. It thus helps couples to plan future pregnancies and avoids the fear associated with this rare anomaly as there is no chance of recurrence in subsequent pregnancies. We discuss a case of conjoined twin (thoracopagus) because of its rarity, with documentation of incidence and type with review of literature.

Keywords: Autopsy, Conjoint twin, Thoracopagus.
