The entity was distinguished from teratoma by the presence of vertebral axis with limb buds. It corresponded to a diamniotic, monochorionic, monozygotic twin. Complete excision of the mass was performed. Radiological, histopathologic, and DNA fingerprinting studies performed on fetus-in-fetu specimen showed that the fetus was a monozygotic twin.
