We describe a rare conjoined twinning at 9 weeks of gestation. We compared the results of two- and three-dimensional sonography with autopsy findings after the termination of pregnancy. These results showed a thoracoomphalopagus with a shared heart and visceral organs. Three-dimensional sonography showed anencephaly in one of the embryos. Early and accurate prenatal diagnosis of this type of conjoined twins using three-dimensional sonography is critical for both parental counseling and minimizing maternal morbidity. © 2010 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
