Abstract


The fetus acardiac headless is a rare anomaly characteristic of twin monochromic pregnancies. Its frequency is 1/35000 births. Its evolution is constantly lethal for the affected fetus. The healthy fetus is exposed to a high risk of death in utero or complications. Among the different pathophysiological theories proposed, only the vascular theory is retained. Arterio - arterial and venous anastomoses are the source of vascularization against the current TRAP syndrome (Twin Reversed Arterial Perfusion disorder) of the abnormal fetus which receives the desaturated blood of oxygen and low in nutrients from healthy fetus.

Author Keywords: acardiac headless, twin, fetus.
