CALCUTTA (Reuters) - Indian doctors have removed a fetus weighing one kilogram (2.2 lbs) from a 6-month-old boy.

"We could not believe that we would have to remove a dead fetus weighing a kilogram from a child weighing 6.5 kilograms," Dr. Pradip Kumar Mukherjee, who led the team of Calcutta doctors that operated on the boy on Monday, told Reuters.

"It is a rare case."

Doctors use the medical term "fetus in fetu" to describe a phenomenon in which an imperfect fetus is contained within the body of its sibling.

In November 2000, doctors at another nursing home in Calcutta removed a fetus weighing 230 grams from a 40-day-old infant.

I was of the opinion this stuff is pretty common, not whole fetus's but certainly body parts, doesn't it happen due to abnormalities in cell division, same as with siamese twins but internal?

remember total recall, where the mesiah mutant lived in the body of another mutant? oogh-h-h.

also that reminds me of the stories about people with tumors containing hair, teeth, and all other sorts or weird stuff. maybe those are caused by 'imperfect feti' that don't develop very much but stay in the 'host' and slowly grow over many years...
