The role of antenatal ultrasound is established in detecting fetal well-being and abnormalities. Cepahalothoracomphalopagus conjoined twin is a rare occurrence and typical ultrasound features have been described in the literature. We report a case of cephalothoracoomphalopagus conjoined twin diagnosed by ultrasound performed in a peripheral Maternal and Child Health Centre and later confirmed at a district hospital. The objective of this case report is to emphasize the possibility of fetal abnormalities even in low risk antenatal case at early gestational age and highlight the ultrasound features of this rare condition.
