Conjoined twins is a rare congenital malformation. It is a rare type of monozygotic monoamniotic monochorionic twins. Ultrasound is the standard investigation for fetal scanning. Here we present a case of conjoined twins diagnosed by transabdominal ultrasound examination at 23 weeks and 1 day gestation in a young female with a history of primary infertility and ovulation induction. They were joined at the chest and the abdomen and had one functional heart and one liver. The pregnancy was terminated by cesarean section at 23 weeks’ gestation, with the approval of the family.
