We report the case of a dichorionic and diamniotic pregnancy with the unique feature of an early ultrasound diagnosis of a 4-week size difference, which persisted throughout pregnancy. At birth, the twins had a 1-month difference in physical and neurological maturity. We believe that only the phenomenon of a superfetation can explain this difference. We report the cases found in the literature.
