Greek Girl Carries Her Twin Inside
A 9-year-old girl from Greece who went to hospital in central Greece suffering from stomach pains was found to be carrying her embryonic twin, doctors said Thursday.
Doctors at Larissa General Hospital examined the girl and surgically removed a growth they later discovered was an embryo more than two inches long.
"They could see on the right side that her belly was swollen, but they couldn't suspect that this tumor would hide an embryo," hospital director Iakovos Brouskelis said.
The girl has made a full recovery, he said.
Andreas Markou, head of the hospital's pediatric department, said the embryo was a formed fetus with a head, hair and eyes, but no brain or umbilical cord.
Markou said cases where one of a set of twins absorbs the other in the womb occurs in one of 500,000 live births.Free Classified Ads & BUSINESS/PROFESSIONAL SOCIAL NETWORK

Oh mydayz lol. I wonder if my Parents saw this on the news , they are in Greece at the moment selling one of their properties. This must have been very weird for the family. I hope they can get over the loss of the little twin, just knowing that it was there all this time.
