Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Acephalus Acardia is an uncommon congenital malformation due to twin reverse arterial perfusion syndrome. In this condition the donor twin provides circulation for itself and the recipient acardiac twin. The acardiac twin is grossly abnormal with severe reduction anomalies of the upper part of the body. We report a case with autopsy findings and review of literature.
