Congenital disorders are anatomical and physiological disturbances found at birth or usually before birth. These defects may affect a part of the system or entire system (Noden and DeLahunta, 1985). Diprosopus dicephalus is a condition in which there is duplication of facial as well as the cranial part resulting in two complete heads (Hiraga and Dennis, 1993). ‘Diprosopus monauchenos’ which involves only the duplication of facial parts and the neck remains common, though reported is a rare case (Salami et al., 2011). Similar case in a jersey cross calf with diprosopus condition which survived 15 days is described in this report.

Key words: Diprosopus, jersey cross cattle, monauchenos
