One-year-old girl has baby in stomach


www.news.com.au

AMAZED doctors have found a one-year-old girl is carrying a baby in her stomach.

Little Kang Mengru, from China, left medics confused after her belly became grossly enlarged.

Doctors carried out a CT scan to discover the cause of the growth and found a foetus.

They believe the tot is her parasitic twin.

She is now waiting for an operation to have the foetus removed.

Gross! I wonder if it is alive? I mean, if it was growing, one would assume it was.... Certainly the baby didnt come out that way!!

This smells bogus, the stomach isn't exactly Club Med. It's an extremely volatile environment.

But the wording suggests that this baby is growing, and is alive. That's just not possible if its in the stomach.

It's been discussed earlier today, no harm though


It's uncommon but it happens. Parasitic twins. Ugh.

Could you imagine.

I have a phobia of babies at that, I couldn't imagine one living inside of me, or dead! eek!

There was a story in some medical journal from the 19th century I was reading a while back that talked about some poor guy that had the head of his twin sister attached to the back of his head. It was unable to communicate or anything but was said to drool incessantly and always had a hateful scowl. Even worse, the poor guy claimed he could hear her thoughts in his mind and it was always evil stuff... he ended up killing himself as he could no longer stand her 'vile thoughts'. That one always gave me the willies man. I wonder if that's where Stephen King got his idea for The Dark Half from?
Parasitic tereta or something like that was the name for it, basicly a twin that got swallowed up during fetal development. To my understanding it is rare for recognizable features to develop like that, but happens alot more than people realize.

This has happend before, but alas I can't remember either where it happend or when. All I remember was that same feeling of "whoa" and then moving on...

Nasty thing to go through, it's fodder for a horrormovie writer hehe.

I'm pretty sure that this can actually happen (rarely) in the case of twins, but this particular case doesn't seem real to me. The story does make it sound like the foetus is growing, which is not possible, and even if it isn't growing, they would have noticed something that big on day 1 in the hospital. Either way, I don't buy it.

I was going to point out The Dark Half too. Pretty neat book about this phenomenon. It's uncommon, but it's pretty well known about in the medical community.

I was thinking more of Basket Case or Total Recal. Maybe this parasitic twin will bring the Dalai Lama back to China!!

It more common than think... Heck It's more common that I thought...
There was a recent dadteline ep where a woman had what her doctors thought was a tumor... that tumor turned out to have teeth and hair, then they went on to explain how often one baby will absorb a twin in the very early stages of development.

That sounds completely crazy... I"ve heard of parasitic twins before but never like you described. If you can find a link to what you read or remember the actual journal let me know. I'd like to read that.

Sounds like something from the "Venture Brothers" (or maybe South Park).

I believe the last case like this involved a man who inhaled a seed and had it growing inside his lungs. Eating a seed would destroy it would pass through the bowels.

It wasn't online, it was a book and I can't remember the exact name of it but it was something like Medical Anamolies of the 19th century. I think the case was in London, but don't hold me to that. It was, hands down, the creepiest thing I've ever read in a medical publication.

That's the story of Edward Mordrake. You can probably google him to find more info. As far as I'm concerned it's just a made up story...but they say it has some resemblance of other people that's been documented. You can find mention of him and others on a website called Thehumanmarvels.com.

EDIT: just dug around some....the book is called "Anomalies and Curiosities of Medicine by George M. Gould and Walter L. Pyle

That's it, great digging!

Was a fascinating book and I wish I had held on to it. I used to have a pretty serious library, went through some really hard times several years back and had to get rid of about 1200-1500 books. I almost cried when I later found out how much the Nancy Drew, Hardy Boys and Bobsy Twins sets were worth lol. Had some first edition Kahil Gibrans, NCLC's and stuff that is pretty much irreplacable to me now.
