Abstract Acardiac twinning, a rare congenital anomaly of monozygotic twin pregnancy, often results from abnormal placental vascular anastomoses. This leads to twin reversal arterial perfusion with complex pathophysiology. Current information on early recognition and treatment for salvation of the normal twin is based on individual case reports in the literature. We report 2 cases of acardiac-acephalus twins and briefly review the relevant literature.
