At Pravara Rural Hospital a 29 year old patient was admitted for delivery. Patient had conjoint-twins diagnosed after sonography and was posted for elective caesarean section. Patient was managed under general anaesthesia after thorough preparation and under multi-disciplinary involvement. Both the twins females were living and were further managed by neonatologists. Though conjoint-twins are rare and patients coming for delivery with conjoint-twins are still rarer because of early diagnosis and termination, anaesthesiologists working in developing countries and working in remote areas may face such patients. There are very few publications for management of delivery in such patients, hence this case report.
