Meckel syndrome in twins

Turk J Pediatr. 1989 Jan-Mar;31(1):79-82.


Meckel syndrome in twins is presented. Although several families have been reported as having this syndrome in more than one member, this is the first instance that twins having this disorder have been reported. We wish to emphasize the importance of genetic counselling in such a case in which prenatal diagnosis is possible.
