Multiple pregnancy contributes to higher maternal and fetal risks than a single one. Complications typical only for multiple pregnancy such as PROM with preterm delivery, intrauterine death or IUGR of one of twins can occur during 2nd and 3rd trimester. Treatment in such situations is usually difficult and often controversial because of simultaneous presence of an alive and/or healthy fetus and possible risk for mother. The paper presents such situations and possible ways of treatment.
