Title:Single fetal death in twin pregnancies, called Vanishing Twin Syndrome and Fetus papyraceus.

This video shows Single fetal death in twin pregnancies, called Vanishing Twin Syndrome and Fetus papyraceus.
A vanishing twin, also known as twin resorption, is a fetus in a multigestation pregnancy that dies in utero and is then partially or completely reabsorbed. In some instances, the dead twin is compressed into a flattened, parchment-like state known as fetus papyraceus.
Fetus papyraceus is a rare condition that describes a mummified fetus in a multiple gestation pregnancy in which one fetus dies and becomes flattened between the membranes of the other fetus and uterine wall.
When a twin dies after the embryonic period of gestation, the water within the twin's tissues, the amniotic fluid, and the placental tissue may be reabsorbed. This results in the flattening of the deceased twin from the pressure of the surviving twin.
If a twin dies in the second or third trimester, the remaining baby may be at an increased risk of intrauterine growth restriction (IGR), and the mother may be at risk of preterm labor, infection, or hemorrhaging.
The most common symptom of stillbirth is when you stop feeling your baby moving and kicking. Others include cramps, pain, or bleeding from the vagina.
There is a high chance of having significant bleeding when pregnancy in the second trimester delivers on its own at home. In the case of fetal demise, a dead fetus that has been in the uterus for 4 weeks can cause changes in the body's clotting system.
The death of one fetus in a twin pregnancy can be an unexpected and sad event. But often the health of the remaining fetus is unaffected and the pregnancy will continue to a healthy birth.
Do you bleed more after having twins?
With uterine atony, the uterus doesn't contract as well as it should. This can cause heavy bleeding after you give birth. You may be more likely to have this if you: Give birth to more than one child at a time (twins, for example)
Loss of one twin in the first trimester does not appear to impair the development of the surviving twin in the first trimester. However, fetal death occurring after mid-gestation (17 weeks' gestation) may increase the risk of IUGR, preterm labor, preeclampsia, and perinatal mortality.
Twins kick, touch, and play together in the womb.
That's right! From about 20 weeks onward, your growing twins will touch each other and move around the womb together. Developing babies sleep most of the time, but motion and sounds can startle them awake, so a poke or kick acts as a wake-up call.
Siblicide can also be seen in humans in the form of twins in the mother's womb. One twin may grow to be average weight, while the other is underweight. This is a result of one twin taking more nutrients from the mother than the other twin. This type of killing (siblicide) is rarer than other types of killings.
It's usually possible to find out if you're having twins through your dating ultrasound scan, which happens at around 11 to 14 weeks. At the scan, you should be told whether the babies share a placenta (meaning they're identical) or if they have 2 separate placentas (meaning they can be identical or not).
Singleton pregnancies that started as twins are still difficult and risky for the fetus and the mother – aborting the other fetus does not change that.
Can a baby be born after the mother dies?
A person born in these circumstances is called a posthumous child or a posthumously born person. Most instances of posthumous birth involve the birth of a child after the death of its father, but the term is also applied to infants delivered shortly after the death of the mother, usually by cesarean section.
Studies suggest that vanishing twin syndrome occurs before the 12th week of pregnancy is around 36% of pregnancies with two gestations, and more than 50% of pregnancies with three or more gestations.
