Multiple gestations, especially monochorionic twins are associated with unique complications such as twin to twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS) and twin reversed arterial perfusion (TRAP) sequence due to preferential blood flow within the vascular communications between the two fetuses. TRAP sequence is a rare complication of monochorionic twins. The authors describe two cases of acardiac twins, one diagnosed at 17 weeks and the other at 24 weeks. While the first one was lost to follow-up, the second pregnancy was managed expectantly with close antepartum surveillance and had a term vaginal delivery of a healthy baby, along with the acardiac twin which was non-viable. The pump twin continues to be developmentally normal.
