The New York Post reports that two Pakistani surgeons removed two fetuses from a two month old baby girl.
“It is extremely rare to have two fetuses being discovered inside another,” Abbasi told The Associated Press, adding that he did not know what caused the medical abnormality.
You don’t say. Here I thought I was reading a news article about an ordinary, every day occurrence, such as I am wont to do. BTW, did you know that Web sites regularly target Internet Explorer’s poor security?
Other fetus-in-fetu cases have been reported elsewhere in the world. A report in a June 2000 issue of the U.S. journal Pediatrics called such occurrences rare and estimated their rate at about 1 per 500,000 births.
Must be nice to be able to tell a child when they’ve grown up that they were officially two in a million? I’m sure those parents must be proud.
