A Chinese baby girl was born “pregnant” with the fetuses of twin babies in her abdomen.
It was originally believed that the baby girl had two tumors in her abdomen. It was later discovered that they were fetuses, an abnormality called “fetus in fetu’
Fetus in fetu occurs in just one in 500,000 births in the world and less than 200 cases have ever been reported.
The girl underwent surgery at three weeks old to remove the fetuses.
One of the fetuses weighed 14.2 grams, and the other 9.3 grams. Each fetus was connected to a placenta-like mass via an umbilical cord.
