Conjoined twins refer to the fetuses that are born physically connected to each other. These often result in dystocia at the time of parturition. The present case deals with the similar findings, in which dystocia due to sternopagus conjoined twins in a Murrah buffalo was reported. After critical analysis and proper diagnosis, it was decided to manage the obstetrical emergency by fetotomy. The non-surgical technique proved fruitful which led to the delivery of sternopagus conjoined twin monster and thus, the case was managed successfully through partial fetotomy.
