The baby from Hong Kong was found to be “pregnant” after delivery. There is a suspicious lump on the left side of the baby’s stomach, so the team of doctors conducts further tests. After the examination, it turned out that the baby girl was “pregnant” with her own twin.
How can the twins be swallowed up into the baby’s body? The findings made by a team of doctors found that in the baby’s body there are structures like the fetus that are not fully formed. Its position is in the kidneys and liver which weighs 50 grams and in parts it only weighs approximately 18 grams.
The fetus was in the stomach of the baby who had just finished giving birth to a suspicion by the team of doctors. First, the team of doctors suspected that it was not a fetus but a teratoma or a type of tumor commonly found in women of reproductive age. Second, the team of doctors suspected that the baby who was born weighing 4,008 grams had a fetus in fetu where the fetus could grow inside the baby’s body. Fetus in Fetu is a rare condition that only occurs in one in five hundred thousand births in the world.
In fact, the report obtained from the Hong Kong Medical Journal, the fetus already has the structure of two hands, feet, sumsung, spine, brain, ribs, intestines and umbilical cord. Apart from the already formed structures, the next discovery was that both the fetus and the baby have the same DNA structure. This study strengthens the evidence that initially the mother “contains” triplets who are identical twins but only one baby can survive.
Meanwhile, the condition of the two fetuses in the baby’s stomach can occur because they are sucked into the body of the sibling at 10 weeks of gestation before the growth of the two fetuses stops. However, research cannot find the cause of the two fetuses in the baby’s body.
Meanwhile, according to the obstetrician, Dr said that the team of doctors could not detect any fetal growth in the baby’s body, especially at five weeks of pregnancy. In addition, the doctor Dr. Contivelle from University Hospitals Case Medical Center, Cleveland, Ohio said that he did not see the baby’s condition first hand even though he was an expert in fetus in fetus and especially but he said as quoted by ABC news that fetus in fetu is a rare condition even in 30 years of being a doctor only saw it once.
While fetus in fetu itself is a condition where there is an abnormality related to the baby, which is a disorder that occurs because the fetus is trapped in a twin. The fetus that continues to live is a parasite even after the birth of the baby will form umbilical structures that will suck the blood supply of the twins. Fetus in fetu can generally occur very early in multiple pregnancies where one fetus wraps around the other.
