Background: The incidence of multiple gestations increased after the assisted reproductive techniques. Preterm labor and preterm premature rupture of fetal membranes are the most common complications of multiple gestations. Traditionally, if one fetus is delivered preterm in twin pregnancies, the situation is managed by delivery of the second fetus. Recently, there are reported cases of delayed-interval delivery (DID) of the second twin, with good outcome without established protocol for management of such cases. This report presents the protocol suggested by Abdelazim and Shikanova for the management of DID of the remaining second twin. Conclusion: The birth weight and the survival rate increased after Abdelazim and Shikanova suggested protocol for management of DID of the remaining second twin without any maternal risks or complications. DID should be done in tertiary centers after informing the parents about the possible risks of keeping the live second twin in the hostile intrauterine environment.
