Abstract: Umbilical cord accidents threaten fetal wellbeing and result into fetal jeopardy. A four and half month pregnant nulliparous non-descriptive goat was presented with continuous straining and lodging of fetuses in the birth canal. A mummified fetus was removed and found to have 720° torsion in the umbilical cord. Crown-rump length (CRL) revealed the age of the fetus that was dead and mummified with the presence of another fetus maintained by a corpus luteum. Abortion of the fetus has led to lysis of the corpus luteum leading to termination of pregnancy. The present case study narrates the successful delivery of one aborted fetus and one mummified fetus due to umbilical cord torsion.
