Female conjoined twins were delivered after 42 weeks' gestation, but they died within a few minutes of birth. They were dicephalus, dibrachius and dipus conjoined twins with two separate spines and fusion of the trunk and the pelvis. The pericardial sac was common, and the heart was a single structure. The atrial complex was a common chamber with an attempt at division into two parts by a circular ridge of tissue; the ventricular complex was formed by three chambers which were all communicating between each other in the superior margin of their muscular interventricular septum.
