A one-year-old child has been found pregnant in Saudi Arabia. But she's no Juno. Check out the shocking X-ray photos.
A team of doctors traced the biological processes to find out how a baby girl could be pregnant. It turns out that the mother of the pregnant baby originally had two embryos, but one began to develop in the uterus of the other fetus. In other words, the baby girl is carrying her unborn twin.
Doctors are in consultations about the abortion to save the one-year-old.
About 51 similar incidents have been recorded in medical history, although the incidence rate is not high. The abnormality occurs in 1 in 500,000 live births.
Doctors were certain that the man had a gigantic tumor in his belly. However, they found fragments of human genitalia, hairs, limbs and jaws in the patient and finally removed a underdeveloped fetus that had legs and arms with long fingernails.
In 2002, Indian doctors found a six-month-old boy to have a fetus inside. The dead fetus, which surgeons removed from the boy, weighed one kilo, whereas the boy himself weighed 6.5 kilos.
One of the world's most bizarre medical conditions is known as fetus in fetu. It is an extremely rare abnormality that occurs when a fetus gets trapped inside its twin. The trapped fetus can survive as a parasite even past birth by forming an umbilical cordlike structure that leaches its twin's blood supply until it grows so large that it starts to harm the host, at which point doctors usually intervene.
A fetus in fetu can be considered alive, but only in the sense that its component tissues have not yet died or been eliminated. Thus, the life of a fetus in fetu is inherently limited to that of an invasive tumor.
Does this story freak you out as much as it freaks us out? Truly bizarre!
