Abstract

Two cases are reported of acardiac-acephalic twin pregnancy, a rare malformation of multiple gestations with large placental vascular anastomosis. In both cases, respectively 25 and 30 weeks of gestation, ultrasound scan revealed a first normal fetus and a nonviable twin without cardiac activity and head, but increasing in size at serial scans. The authors describe the obstetric management, the Rx details and the anatomo-pathological findings emphasizing the analogies between the two acardiac fetuses.
