That is what they call "vanishing twin" or "fetal resorption." Sometimes it is not fully absorbed, but flattened, and the condition is called fetus papyraceus. If this happens in the first trimester, there may be no other complications except some bleeding. However, if it happens later, it could threaten the health of the mother or surviving twin. If it happens at the very end, and the dead fetus is low-lying, then a caesarean may be required to deliver the living twin.

I hope you mean 4.2 "inches?" At 18 weeks a fetus should measure 5-6 inches in length. Due to twin fetus' the length could vary to smaller lengths. It seems to be close to the range indicated but a little on the small size.
