Abstract

We describe a rare case of multiple intestinal atresias, congenital bilateral perisylvian polymicrogyria, and chronic pulmonary hypertension in a surviving monochorionic twin with co-twin demise. This constellation of congenital anomalies represents a multiple vascular disruption syndrome due to intrauterine vascular compromise in the setting of possible twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome.
