We herein sonographically document a new type of fetal head malposition in labor which has never been clinically described. In some circumstances, the fetal lie is characterised by a lateral twisting of the head on either side of the trunk and at suprapubic ultrasound, a transverse section of the fetal chest together with the facial profile may be obtained on the same picture. These sonographic findings were documented in 5 cases of 1st stage labor arrest. This report illustrates how in these circumstances ultrasound might be helpful in claryfing the exact mechanism causing obstructed labor.
