Abstract
Twin-twin transfusion syndrome(TTTS) is a serious complication of monozygotic mu-ltiple pregnancy. TTTS is associated with high perinatal mortality rate. The acute form has been attributed to rapid transfer of blood through superficial artery-to-artery or vein-to- vein anastomoses during labor and delivery, resulting in a hypovolemic, anemic donor twin and a hypervolemic, plethoric recipient twin of similar birth weight. The authors present a case of acute twin-twin transfusion syndrome with a review of literature.
Key Words: Twin-twin transfusion syndrome
