The operation to remove the embryos from the child's stomach lasted an hour and a half. The baby is now on the mend.
The baby girl, with eight embryos inside, was born at a private hospital in Ramgarh district, Jharkhand state, and became a real sensation in the medical world, writes The Sun.
The baby was born on October 10, but some time after her birth, worried parents brought their daughter to the doctors, because her bloated belly was very disturbing for the couple.
The doctors performed a CT scan of the newborn and saw images that really suggested the presence of a tumor . Subsequently, the girl was transferred to the Rani Children's Hospital and Research Center in Ranchi.
After the scan results came in, the team, led by Dr. Mohammed Imran, was stunned to find eight underdeveloped embryos in the girl's abdomen.
Three weeks after the birth, the girl, who was under observation in the hospital, underwent an hour and a half operation, as a result of which the doctors removed everything superfluous from her body.
It is not reported how developed the embryos were. However, there are facts when ugly embryos were cut out from newborns, which had muscles, bones, hair and genitals.
Now the girl feels good and is on the mend.
Doctors call this phenomenon “fetus in fetus” and “parasitic twin”, and in the entire history of observations, an extremely unusual and rare defect has been recorded 200 times , but so prolific – for the first time. The first description of “fetus within a fetus” appeared in the British Medical Journal as early as 1808.
A fetus within a fetus results from the incomplete separation of twins. However, doctors do not know exactly how this happens. Some suggest that a healthy embryo connects to the mother through the placenta, while the other attaches to the twin's blood vessels. As the older twin grows, the smaller one is absorbed by him.
Other scientists suggest that this happens as a result of late cell division.
Thanks to modern technology and timely diagnosis, doctors in the early stages reveal similar cases.
