In the Indian city of Jahazpur, an unnamed 21-year-old woman admitted herself into Ram Snehi Hospital, after experiencing significant pain during her pregnancy. When she went in for an ultrasound scan, doctors informed her that she would be having twins. At the end of this expectant mother’s pregnancy, however, medical professionals overseeing the delivery of this baby were witness to an astonishing medical anomaly.
This young girl (who is yet to be named by her mother) was delivered by Caesarean section, and had an entire head growing out of her stomach with eyes, ears and even a mouth. There was also a small hand growing out of this newborn’s chest. Last week, this baby was taken to the JK Lone Hospital in Jaipur, and a team of surgeons worked to save her life.
