Baby Born With another Baby Inside Stomach

A baby was born with a twin inside her stomach, in Israel, which is a very rare occurrence. The Doctors were shocked even though they had done a late pregnancy ultrasound for the mother before the delivery. At that time, they found out that the fetus had an enlarged stomach.

An X-ray was done on the newborn and Doctors found a fetus in the fetu. This happens only once in every 500,000 births.


In this case, one twin was absorbed by the other, scientists call the baby that was found in the stomach of the other one, a parasitic twin. Scientists believe the mother had an identical twin pregnancy, but it is unclear what caused the embryonic rarity.

It was good that Doctors were able to remove the parasitic twin and the other baby is expected to recover from the surgery fully.
