Man With Twin Living Inside Him -- A Medical Mystery

ABC News Link to Full Story

Bhagat, they discovered, had one of the world's most bizarre medical conditions -- fetus in fetu. It is an extremely rare abnormality that occurs when a fetus gets trapped inside its twin. The trapped fetus can survive as a parasite even past birth by forming an umbilical cordlike structure that leaches its twin's blood supply until it grows so large that it starts to harm the host, at which point doctors usually intervene.

Sanju Bhagat's stomach was once so swollen he looked nine months pregnant and could barely breathe.
Living in the city of Nagpur, India, Bhagat said he'd felt self-conscious his whole life about his big belly. But one night in June 1999, his problem erupted into something much larger than cosmetic worry.
An ambulance rushed the 36-year-old farmer to the hospital. Doctors thought he might have a giant tumor, so they decided to operate and remove the source of the bulge in his belly.

These stories never cease to fascinate me!
The story is a bit old but apparently this man lived like this for 36 years!
Can you even imagine what that would be like?

Dr. Ajay Mehta of Tata Memorial Hospital in Mumbai said that he can usually spot a tumor just after he begins an operation. But while operating on Bhagat, Mehta saw something he had never encountered. As he cut deeper into Bhagat's stomach, gallons of fluid spilled out -- and then something extraordinary happened.

"To my surprise and horror, I could shake hands with somebody inside," he said. "It was a bit shocking for me."

I enjoy posting material of this sort because it reinforces the idea that anything is possible, it is all a matter of simple numbers. About 107,000,000,000 people have been born in human history, on Earth! Even if the odds for something as this, are greater then 1 in a Billion, that still leaves a lot of room for occurrences.
When I think about this I wonder what other anomalies are out there that we don't know about yet?
Will one of these medical wonders start the next stage in evolution?
Or does this happen slowly over time, like the way our little toes are disappearing?
Then again, maybe it's a bit of both. . .

Very strange and interesting, thanks for sharing!
Did the fetus/person survive? Or did it die after being removed considering their brother was the host?

And wow 36 years! I enjoyed my pregnancy so much, I wish I could have been pregnant for 36 years! Lucky bastard

EDIT:::: **

Accordingly, while a fetus in fetu can share select morphological features with a normal fetus, it has no prospect of any life outside of the host twin. Moreover, it poses clear threats to the life of the host twin on whom its own life depends.

Found the answer to my question! ^^

This was literally an X Files episode back in the 90s!

Forget the name, but it was about a circus.

I wish I could say the same thing but for me being pregers sucked! I couldn't wait to get them out.

The twin was malformed but it was living.
I don't know how to classify what it was now that I'm thinking about it.

One of the best X-Files featuring the Jim Rose Freak Show 'Humbug'!

It was Season 2 - episode 20 "Humbug" - 1995

Interesting but disturbing at the same time.
