A one-year-old child has been found pregnant

A team of doctors traced the biological courses to find out how a baby girl could be pregnant. It twists out that the mother of the pregnant baby at first 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 discussion about the abortion to save the one-year-old

About 51 similar incidents have been recorded in medical history, although the occurrence rate is not high. The abnormality occurs in 1 in 500,000 live births. In June, 1999, the case of Sanju Bhagat from India attracted concentration. He had unknowingly carried his parasitic "twin" inside his body for 36 years.

Doctors were sure 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 an immature 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, while the boy himself weighed 6.5 kilos.

One of the world's most strange medical conditions is known as fetus in fetu. It is an extremely rare irregularity that occurs when a fetus gets trapped inside its twin. The trapped fetus can live as a parasite even past birth by forming an umbilical cordlike structure that leaches its twin's blood supply until it grows so big 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 intelligence that its part tissues have not yet died or been eliminated. Thus, the life of a fetus in fetu is innately limited to that of an invasive tumor.

Does this story freak you out as much as it freaks us out? Truly wacky!
