Our aim is to report a case of twin pregnancy in which delivery of the twins were delayed 49 days without any conservative treatment.
A 25-year-old nulliparous infertile woman, who was diagnosed as having dichorionic-diamniotic twins, was admitted to the hospital with immediate threatened abortion and preterm premature rupture of the membranes at 17 weeks’ gestation. After a few hours of her admission, she miscarried her first baby. She was followed expectantly with bed rest and antibiotics for three days and then discharged from the hospital without any treatment upon her request. Forty-nine days after the miscarriage, she was admitted to the hospital again with vaginal bleeding and delivered the second baby at 25 weeks’ gestation. It was discovered that she was on her daily activities and received no specific conservative treatment, including bed rest during this time interval.
The time interval between the deliveries of the twins in this case is similar to those in the literature that received treatment. However, expected management should only be reserved as an option in selected cases.
