In a rare medical anomaly, a foetus has been found inside the stomach of a 40-day-old child in Motihari in Indian state of Bihar, media reports said. The baby was recently brought to the Rahmania Medical Center in Motihari for treatment as the child was not able to urinate properly. The child seems to have an inflation near stomach, the doctor was told by the family. The doctor, Dr Tabrez Aziz of Rahmania Medical Center, asked for a CT scan of the patient to examine the cause of bloating near the stomach. When the result came in, the doctor was shocked to find the unusual medical anomaly where a foetus was getting developed inside his stomach.
"A rare medical anomaly has come to light where a foetus was seen developing inside the stomach of a 40-day-old infant. It is called ‘Foetus in Foetu’. The infant has undergone surgery and his condition is stable," Dr Aziz told ANI, while talking about this rare phenomenon. The child has also been discharged from the hospital.
