We report a "stuck" twin, in which a reverse blood shunt from the recipient to the donor was detected by Doppler sonography after death of the donor. This acute reverse transfusion caused intrauterine fetal distress and severe neonatal anemia of the surviving recipient. We believe that acute hemodynamic change after death of one fetus, in addition to causing a derangement in coagulation, causes immediate danger or subsequent organ damage for the surviving co-twin.
