Abstract: Aim and objective: To study maternal and fetal outcome in twin pregnancy with single fetal intrauterine demise (SFIUD) Introduction: Twin gestation is associated with more complications, amongst which monochorionic twin poses greater threats. Demise of one fetus in utero endangers the life of surviving fetus as well as the mother. Surviving fetus poses risk of neurological deficits and even death, while mother is at risk of coagulopathies, abruption, preterm delivery and DIC. Materials and method: The study is prospective observational type conducted between May 2022 to May 2023 at MDM Janana Hopsital, Dr. S. N. Medical College, Jodhpur. The data was collected from admission records, birth entry registers in labor room and operation theatres and patients were followed up till delivery. Results: There were 6586 deliveries between may 2022 and may 2023. Out of these, 126 were number of twin deliveries. Four percent of twin deliveries were the ones with SFIUD. Incidence of SFIUD was found more in monochorionic twins. Common complications found were preterm birth, abruption and preeclampsia. Conclusion: SFIUD is not rare event found these days. Each case should be individualized. Thorough fetal monitoring with good neonatal facilities should be ensured.
