UNLABELLED: Twin pregnancy generally represents a high-risk pregnancy, but monozygous twin pregnancy is a real challenge for the obstetrician due to the serious complications that may occur during its evolution. A very rare, severe complication of monozygous twin pregnancy, which we recently dealt with in the Obstetrics and Gynecology Department of the University Emergency Hospital Bucharest, was a monochorionic monoamniotic twin pregnancy with acardiac twin (TRAP). One of the fetuses (acardiac twin) presented a rudimentary unfunctional heart or even no heart at all, underdeveloped inferior part of the body and head, being transfused by the other fetus with a normal heart (pumping twin) by one superficial arterio-arterial anastomosis through which blood pumped backwards. The understanding of these cases is mandatory in order to offer maximum survival and heath chances to the viable fetus.ABBREVIATIONS: RFA = radiofrequency ablation, TRAP = reversed arterial perfusion.

Vulvar carcinomas are rare gynecologic malignancies. In cases presenting local invasion oncologic treatment such as chemo-irradiation might be performed. However complete remission is achieved in rare cases, most of the patients necessitating an aggressive surgical therapy such as pelvic exenteration. We present the case of a 78 year old patient who was diagnosed with a poorly differentiated squamous cell vulvar cancer with urethral invasion in whom a total vulvectomy en bloc with anterior pelvic exenteration, pelvic, para-aortic and inguinal lymph node dissection was performed. © 2015 Romanian Society of Ultrasonography in Obstetrics and Gynecology.
