H. El- Sheikh , A.O. Hegab and S.M. Zaabel
 
Abstract: A still born atlodymus dicephalus female buffalo calf was delivered after performing a caesarian section in a buffalo cow suffering from dystocia and hydrops amnii. The right head had a cleft palate. The pharynx, larynx and spinal cord of each head join its surpassing of the other head into a single trachea, esophagus and spinal cord, respectively. Hydrops amnii in this case was attributed to defective deglutition due to cleft palate.
