NOMURA, Marcelo Luís et al. Monoamniotic pregnancy and umbilical cord entanglement: case report and literature review. Rev. Bras. Ginecol. Obstet. [online]. 2010, vol.32, n.2, pp. 94-98. ISSN 0100-7203.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-72032010000200008.

Monoamniotic twin pregnancies are very rare, but they are associated with high fetal morbidity and mortality. There is much controversy regarding the follow-up and obstetric procedures towards prenatal diagnosis of intertwined umbilical cords. In this article, we describe a case of monoamniotic pregnancy with diagnosis of intertwined umbilical cords, and we discuss aspects related to the follow-up and obstetric procedures through a brief literature review.
