These are the images of conjoined twins, whoseĀ gestational age was 10 weeks and 2 days. The crown-rump lengthĀ of the greatest oneĀ was only 24mm. There was a slight difference in size between both fetuses who had two separate hearts with different heartbeats, and shared one abdomen and liver with one umbilical cord. The lower limbs were not yet visible. The pregnancy was terminated.
