Fetus papyraceous is defined as a compressed fetus, the mummified, parchment-like remains of a dead twin that is retained in-utero after intrauterine death in the second trimester. We report a case of fetus papyraceous (FP) in a diamniotic and dichorionic pregnancy with no maternal and fetal complications during pregnancy or the post-partum period.
