Abstract
Background: Fetus in fetu is a rare malformation in which a parasitic twin is within a more mature twin. Most of the fetus in fetu are located in the retroperitoneum and are acardiac and anencephalic. Case presentation: Here, a presentation is made of an oropharyngeal fetus in fetu, which was a referral from Rustenburg hospital with suspected gastroschisis, pre-eclampsia, preterm labour at 28 weeks gestation. Conclusion: Prenatal ultrasound remains the cornerstone in diagnosing fetus in fetu and thus provide the essential information for management and parental guidance.
