Diprosopus or craniofacial duplication is an extremely rare craniofacial anomaly. It is the rarest form of conjoined twins. One of the types of incomplete facial duplication is the duplication of nose known as diprosopus dirrhinus, of which there is only a single case report from India to date. In the present article, the authors describe a 5-year-old boy having diprosopus dirrhinus with severe hypertelorism, right cleft 12 and right upper eyelid coloboma, a combination of anomalies which have not been reported to date.
