Abstract

Conjoined twins are extremely rare congenital malformations. Omphalopagus twins are the second most common variety of conjoined twins and usually are joined at the umbilicus. Herein, we present ultrafast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) feature of this rare anomaly at 24 weeks of gestation. Ultrafast MRI can provide additional information that may help ultrasonography for antenatal characterization of such anomalies.
