A rare case: a girl was born in Israel with a twin in her stomach
In Israel, at the Assuta Medical Center in Ashdod, a girl was born with an embryo in her abdomen - this is an extreme medical rarity. Writes about it New Time.
Cases of the birth of a fetus in a fetus occur approximately once every 500 births, doctors say.
Checks and ultrasounds in late pregnancy determined that the girl's abdomen was enlarged, and after the natural birth, the doctors carefully examined her and confirmed that there was something inside the newborn. She immediately underwent a series of additional examinations, including ultrasound and x-rays.
“We were surprised to find an embryo there,” said Omer Globus, director of neonatology at Assuta Medical Center. A team of the best specialists of the medical center performed an operation, as a result of which two formations were removed from the child's abdomen.

“We think there were more than one, and we are still testing it,” he suggested.
Globus emphasized that the remains were not a fully formed embryo, but rather an embryo that only partially developed. According to him, doctors were able to see some of the bones.
"But it was not like an embryo, as we usually imagine it," - said the director of neonatology at the Assuta Medical Center.
According to him, the operation was successful - the newborn is expected to fully recover. Both the little patient and her mother, who has three more children, have already been sent home.

Globus explained that there are a number of theories regarding how such cases arise, one of which is that twins are born during pregnancy, but then one of the embryos engulfs the other.
“This happens as part of the fetal development process, when there are cavities that close during development, and one of the embryos enters such a space. Inside, the fetus partially develops, but does not live, ”he explained.
This phenomenon, sometimes referred to as “vanishing twins syndrome,” is more common in in vitro fertilization (IVF) pregnancies, although it can also occur with natural pregnancies.
