Eight Embryos Taken Out Of 21-Day-Old Girl

Doctors in India were blown away after they extracted eight embryos from a 21-day-old baby girl, the most ever found in a newborn. Her parents were concerned about a growth they were afraid was a tumor, but no one expected what the doctors found.

The baby girl suffered from “fetus in fetu,” a rare congenital anomaly where a malformed and parasitic fetus forms in the body of its twin. There are only around 100 cases of the anomaly confirmed in history. Removing the eight embryos took an hour and a half, and the baby is recovering well from the surgery.
