A fetal death in a multiple pregnancy with one or more normally surviving fetus is unusual. Fetus papyraceous (FP) is a rare obstetric complication in multiple gestations. It is defined as retention of a mummified parchment like remains of a dead fetus in multiple pregnancy associated with a viable twin. It is important to reassure the patient of the normal outcome expected in most of the cases. Herein, we report a rare case of twin FP in a spontaneous triplet pregnancy with a literature review of maternal and neonatal outcomes and management of similar cases.
