A monochorionic diamniotic triplet pregnancy was diagnosed by sonographic scan at 9 weeks of gestation. The three embryos appeared to share the same trophoblast, with two of them sharing the same amniotic sac. The two amniotic sacs were divided by a thin membrane, with no chorionic projection within it, and each amniotic sac presented a single yolk sac. Only few cases of nontrichorionic-triamniotic triplets have been reported in the literature. Although the diagnosis was reached using the two-dimensional ultrasound, the complementary use of three-dimensional ultrasound helped in confirming the diagnosis, and in offering the couple an adequate counseling.

Abstract

A monochorionic diamniotic triplet pregnancy was diagnosed by sonographic scan at 9 weeks of gestation. The three embryos appeared to share the same trophoblast, with two of them sharing the same amniotic sac. The two amniotic sacs were divided by a thin membrane, with no chorionic projection within it, and each amniotic sac presented a single yolk sac. Only few cases of nontrichorionic-triamniotic triplets have been reported in the literature. Although the diagnosis was reached using the two-dimensional ultrasound, the complementary use of three-dimensional ultrasound helped in confirming the diagnosis, and in offering the couple an adequate counseling.
