Dichorionic diamniotic twin pregnancy

Case contributed by Dr Ahmed Mahrous Saied


Routine antenatal follow up

Patient Data

Age: 32
Gender: Female


These ultrasound images show a dichorionic diamniotic twin pregnancy.

Two separate placentae are detected with a thick inter-twin membrane.

Both fetuses are of the same sex (males), so it is not possible to determine if it is a monozygotic or dizygotic pregnancy.

Intact cord insertion can be seen to exclude cord anomalies.
