ABSTRACTThoracopagus, xiphopagus or sternopagus twins represent 75% of symmetrically conjoined twins connected by the sternum or near, located face-to-face and usually they have separate organs except the liver. A case of Thoracopagus twins is reported in this paper. Their gestational age is 13.4 weeks. Our aim is to demonstrating the value of ultrasound in the early diagnosis of congenital morphological defects; to describe the pathological anatomic findings and issues related to the pathogenesis of these twins.
