Introduction: Conjoined twins occur with a frequency of about 1 per 50,000-60,000 deliveries. Parapagus is the term used where there is extensive side to side fusion joined anterolaterally resulting from two nearly parallel notochords which are in close proximity to each other. Case Report: We have got female parapagus conjoined twin born to 25 years old PI mother through cesarean section. The conjoined twins have two heads, four arms and two legs. The diagnostic procedure, patient follow up and outcome will be discussed in detail during the presentation. Conclusion: Parapagus is very rare which represents less than 0.5% of all reported cases of conjoined twins. There are case reports presenting as dicephalic conjoined twins, some are reported to be stillborn, others will die shortly after birth and one case report living for 11 years.
