Abstract
The fetus papyraceus is a remarkably mumified fetus and the complication is rare in multiple pregnancy. If one fetus of multiple pregnancy died in uterus remote from term and other fetus did not, the fetus with placenta is compressed by the membrane of living fetus in uterus and then the dead fetus becomes a fetus papyraceus. Recently we had experienced two cases of fetus papyraceus in twin pregnancy at our department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Keimyung University School of Medicine. We present these cases with brief literatures.
Key Words: Fetus papyraceus
