Anaesthesia management of the conjoined twins poses some difficulties both for the anaesthesiologist and the twins. The airway management, presence of cross circulation, hypothermia and positioning are significant points during anaesthesia. We report the anaesthetic management during the colostomy opening of omphalopagus twins with anal atresia, and ultrasound-guided central venous catheterisation.
