Abstract:

A malformation in the fetus causes monstrosity which results difficulty in parturition. Fetal anomalies and monstrosities are common causes of dystocia in bovine with the incidence of 7.9 % in riverine buffaloes. The present communication records dystocia in a primiparous buffalo due to ischiopagus monster calf which was relieved through an emergency caesarean section. Various genetic and environmental factors are believed to be responsible for the failure of twins to separate after conception resulting in the formation of a conjoined twin. Present case seemed to be due to non-inherited teratogenic defect during embryonic development with early complete duplication of cranial and caudal parts.
