Boy ‘pregnant’ with own twin: Parasitic baby with brain, arm and legs living off brother

on

DOCTORS were astonished when they discovered a newborn boy was “pregnant” – with his own twin brother.

Medics discovered the half-formed baby – complete with a brain, arm and legs – behind the otherwise-healthy new baby boy’s stomach after he was born.

They successfully operated to remove the 3 inch mass which they now suspect was a rare Foetus in foetu twin pregnancy – one of less than 200 recorded in the world.

“Sometimes it can also lead to the death of the host because both get nutrition from a single cord.

“The parasitic baby was lying behind the stomach deriving its nutrition from the host.

“The parasitic baby has been sent for further testing, reports are awaited.

“The parasitic baby is a male of about 3 inches in length, weighing around five ounces and of abnormal development.”

Radiologist Dr Bhavna Thorat spotted the abnormality during a routine scan of the pregnant mother at Bilal Hospital in Mumbra in early July.

When the baby was born nine days later on July 20 he scanned the baby and found “another small baby” inside the newborn’s abdomen.

Dr Thorat added: “It was inside a foetal sac of the newborn.

“I could see bones of the upper and lower limbs of the foetus.
