Conjoined twins are known to be very rare congenital malformations and may be viewedas examples of incomplete twining. Because of their associated anomalies, particularly of cardiovascular system, they usually survive only short postnatal period. We have experienced 2 cases of conjoined twins. One case of dicephalus dipus dibrachius and another case of thoracopagus are presented with brief review of literature.
