Abstract
In diamnionic dichorionic twins, the type of placenta consists of fused and separate types. The expansion of one twin placenta often occurs in the direction of the other implantation site in fused type. Placental development often leads to collision, and the growth of one or both placentas may be hindered, which can cause intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR). We represent a single case of one placental implantation above the another which caused IUFD in one fetus in diamnionic dichorionic twin pregnancy with a brief review of literatures.
Key Words: Abnormal implantation, Twin, IUFD
