We recently had the opportunity to find the following abnormalities
in an apparently monochorional diamniotic twin pregnancy of a 25 years
old para II gravida III woman with no familial history of disease or malformations
Twin A: Sacral agenesis, sirenomelia ( single median femur, short tibia, absent foot ) omphalocele, left amelia, left lung hypoplasia/ agenesis
Twin B: normal The pregnancy is now 19 weeks.
The family does not want to do karyotype. This constellation of synptoms remind us the tetrammelia with pulmonary aplasia. Has anyone the experience of such a case?
