We report a case of single fetal demise in an apparently uncomplicated monochorionic twin pregnancy at 29 weeks of gestation. The surviving co-twin was delivered within 2 days based on ultrasound features of acute fetal anaemia. The baby had neurological damage and renal failure and progressively deteriorated to death. We review the literature on management of single fetal demise in monochorionic twin pregnancy and discuss the controversies in management.
