BACKGROUND Prevalence ofanencephaly in dichorionic twins is higher than in singleton pregnancies. The authors report two cases with two different management strategies. CASE 1 Spontaneous dichorionic diamniotic twin pregnancy with the second twin diagnosed with anencephaly at 12 weeks gestation. Selective feticide was performed at the age of 13.2 weeks.
