The rumour was that the girl, from the Pune area in south west India, turned into a lizard after desecrating a holy book.
She was watching television when her mother knelt down for evening prayers.
The mother asked her daughter to turn off the television, but the teenager kicked the holy book, and turned into a half-lizard-like creature.
No one knows how, when or where the rumour originated.
Dr Pravin Shingare, J J Hospital and Grant Medical College dean, said that he was at first getting phone calls asking for the patient then people started turning up.
