Abstract
With the introduction of assisted reproductive technologies, the incidence of multifetal pregnancies has significantly increased. In vaginal delivery for multifetal pregnancy, the delivery of the second fetus usually follows the first in few minutes. However in rare circumstances, the delivery is delayed for days due to disappearance of uterine contraction after delivery of the first fetus. Successful prolongation of the interdelivery time may improve the neonatal outcomes of the remaining fetus (es), particularly in the cases of extremely premature gestation. We present a case of a delayed delivery of second twin with an interval of 48 days.
Key Words: Multifetal pregnancy, Delayed delivery
