In February we marveled when doctors in Urumqi removed a parasitic twin from the belly of this baby girl. The rare abnormality has occurred again, this time with an infant in Henan province. The fetus in fetu was discovered after the boy was born with an extra penis on his back, which was removed in a three-hour procedure on June 6. While the case was the first of its type at the Tianjin Childrens’ Hospital, doctors say that are not more than 100 cases of parasitic twins in the world, with ten of them in China. If all goes well, the child can be discharged in 10-12 days.
