TRAP (twin reversed arterial perfusion) sequence / acardiac twinning is a rare anomaly that occurs in monozygotic monochorionic twins with an incidence of 1% and in 1 in 35,000 pregnancies overall. The anomalous twin appears as a heterogeneous mass, simulating a teratoma or intrauterine fetal demise. As the normal twin faces increased morbidity and mortality, antenatal diagnosis with gray-scale examination, and Doppler confirmation of the diagnosis of TRAP sequence in twin pregnancies, aids in proper prenatal management. We report two cases of TRAP sequence that we encountered over a single month, with the two cases having different outcomes.
