Baby Born with Twin in His Stomach

 

A male baby was born in Chile, in the southern city of Temuco, with his tiny twin trapped inside his stomach. The very rare condition is referred to as "fetus in fetu." A scan on the mother had discovered the 4-inch-long fetus inside the boy's body.

The fetus had no chance of survival, since it had not fully developed and had no head. After the baby boy was born, doctors operated to remove the tiny twin from the baby's stomach.

"It's very rare. It occurs in only one in every 500,000 live births," said Maria Angelica Belmar, head of the hospital's neonatal wing. Fewer than 90 cases have been reported in the world.

'It occurs in only one in every 500,000 live births,' and 'Fewer than 90 cases have been reported in the world'. That's still quite often considering the number of births in the world. Does that mean that most don't report it, or that there are quite a few people walking around with dead fetuses in them?

Oh, and: I want my baby back baby back baby back baby back baby back baby back ribs. *Chili's* Baby back ribs.

Yes.

Here's a dude that didn't know he had the condition until he was 36! I've got to wonder how you could not think something was wrong with a bulging stomach like that?? (with video goodness)

  doubtful..  
 
that it would have been sentinet. Consider it a parasitic lump of flesh with no one home at the helm.

  Sorry Darkangel!  
 
"Invariably the parasitic fetus is anencephalic (without a brain) and lacks internal organs, and as such is unable to survive on its own, though it may have almost human (albeit underdeveloped and bizarre) features such as limbs, digits, hair, nails and teeth. Fetus in fetu is such a rare condition that only some 92 cases worldwide have ever been reported. Fetus in fetu happens very early in a twin pregnancy, when one fetus wraps around and envelops the other. The dominant fetus grows, while the fetus that would have been its twin lives on throughout the pregnancy, feeding off its host twin like a kind of parasite. Usually, both twins die before birth from the strain of sharing a placenta. Sometimes, however, the host twin survives and is delivered."
