Abstract:

The present case reports a rare case of dystocia in a Cross bred Jersey cow due to double-headed foetus (dicephalic monster). The cattle was relieved by performing emergency caesarean section (left para-median laparohysterotomy). Based on the appearance, the retrieved calf was confirmed as dicephalus foetal monster. With good post operative care and management, the animal recovered uneventfully.
