We are presenting a case of dizygotic twin pregnancy with intra uterine demise of one foetus at 30 weeks of gestation. After evaluation and administration of steroids, conservative management was done with bi-weekly NST, PT INR weekly and an ultrasound 2 weekly. The pregnancy was continued upto 34 weeks. The result was a healthy, mature baby of 2kg birth weight. We recommend conservative management in all cases of dizygotic twin pregnancies with intrauterine demise of one foetus.
