It affects 1 in 35,000 pregnancies. Usually one twin shows absence of heart and other is structurally normal. The acardiac twin presents with many bizarre anomalies such as lack of head, thorax and upper extremities. We report a case of autopsy study of acardiac twin with severe malformations. The case has been presented for its rarity.} }
