Twin-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS) is a severe pregnancy complication of monochorionic twins that results in discordant in utero environments for each genetically identical twin. The aim of this study was to test for differences in temperament between former donor and recipient twins. Parents of dual twin survivors aged 3-7 years who underwent in utero laser surgery for TTTS were surveyed using the Very Short Form of the Child Behavioral Questionnaire (VSF-CBQ). There were no statistically significant differences between the twins. Despite varied in utero environments, no temperament differences between donor/recipient twins were found for the population as a whole.
