Omphalopagus parasite is a very rare congenital anomaly. Presented here is a case in which an extra truncus was attached to an infant in the region of the epigastrium. The truncus had well-formed extremities, an abdomen, and a hypoplastic thorax. The infant had a small omphalocoele in addition to the truncus. Surgery performed in the neonatal period helped to achieve a successful separation of the truncus from the host.
