Conjoined twins are individuals who develop together by some region of his anatomy, vascularly connected and they can share one or more organs. We report a case of two-headed conjoined twins, with the aim of describing the pathologic findings, exposing aspects of possible causes of these accidents and prenatal diagnosis of these defects.

Keywords : conjoined twins; two-headed; monozygotic; epigenetic.
