A rare case of dystocia due to dicephalus monster with kyphosis and arthrogryphosis was recorded in a 5-year old crossbred cow presented with history of full term pregnancy, signs of labor since about 48 hrs, and unsuccessful pre-handling using unskilled traction. Vaginal examination revealed the presence of a dicephalic monster fetus with one of the heads severely damaged (broken jaw and damaged eye canthi). Caesarean section was performed and a female fetus with two heads, necks fused caudally, arthrogryposis in all the limbs and kyphosis was removed.
