Abstract

In a society where myths and superstitions prevail, scientific approaches sometimes become perplexed. Two cases of set of conjoined twins are presented, where a rare anomaly was taken by the family as a curse or punishment of sins, thereby affecting appropriate management. Both were sets of dicephalus parapagus variety; both delivered by cesarean section, one at and the other approaching term, and both died in early neonatal period.
