CASE REPORT
‘Mutiny on the crown’: two cases of rare cephalic malformations

Summary

The presentation and management of two bizarre congenital cephalic curiosities at the two extremes of the clinical spectrum are discussed herewith. Case 1: presented to us as a neonate with a scalp swelling mirror-imaging her head and face. The journey from clinics to wards and to the operation theatre and to her home is introspected. Case 2: presented to us as dicephalous dibrachius dipus parapagus conjoined twins. The detailed work-up of individual organ systems, the multidisciplinary approach to management and the final outcome are discussed. This is an unsolved mystery for the anatomists, paediatric surgeons, radiologists and the medical fraternity at large.
