We report a dichorionic twin pregnancy in which both fetuses were affected by a similar pattern of multiple abnormalities. The afrocaribbean parents had a history of infertility, and the pregnancy was conceived using in vitro fertilisation with donor sperm. The features seen in the fetuses do not fit any previously described disorder well. We discuss the differential diagnoses and suggest that this may be an autosomal recessive disorder which has not been previously described.
