Omphalopagus Conjoined Twins: A Case Report
We present a case of conjoined omphalopagus twins in a 35-year-old woman who came for antenatal booking at 9 weeks of gestation to a health centre in Kota Bharu, Kelantan. The diagnosis was confirmed via ultrasonography by an obstetrician in a tertiary Hospital at 12 weeks of gestation. The pregnancy was allowed to progress as it carried the best chance of survival. However, the parents were in dilemma with the decision. Primary care practitioners play an important role to prepare patients mentally and physically to face the outcome of the pregnancy.
