Conjoined twins are extremely rare and are a type of monozygotic twins that occur due to an incomplete embryonic division on postconception day 13 to 15. Eight different types of conjoined twins have been described in the literature. Management of the condition depends on the site and extent of the union. We present a case of cephalopagus twins diagnosed at 14 weeks of gestation.
