A baby girl is said to have a rare, mysterious medical condition that left her ‘pregnant’ with twins when she was born.
The girl, born to Chinese mainland parents in Queen Elizabeth Hospital Hong Kong, had to undergo surgery at just three weeks old to remove them.
The foetuses, 8 to 10 weeks gestated, had legs, arms, a spine, rib cage and intestines.
Both were also covered in skin one weighed 14.2 grammes and the other 9.3 grammes – and each had an umbilical cord.
The surgery was successful and the girl was discharged from hospital eight days later.
