I think mothers-to-be worry a lot about possible pregnancy complications and weird, unlikely things they’ve seen on television. This one, however, I’ve never heard of!

From The Daily Mail:

An Indian teenager with chronic stomach pains was shocked to be told they were caused by the malformed foetus of his twin.

Doctors were astonished to find the 2.5kg mass of bone, hair and teeth inside Narendra Kumar’s abdomen.

The parasite had been feeding off Narendra, 18, after forming an umbilical cord-like structure that leached its twin’s blood supply.

He was finally diagnosed with ‘foetus in fetu,’ a rare condition with only 200 cases ever reported worldwide.

The condition occurs when during the early stages of pregnancy with twins, one foetus enters the other through the umbilical cord.

There, it becomes a parasite, living off its sibling’s body for survival.

According to doctors of Swaroop Narayan Hospital in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, it had been living like a parasite inside his body since his birth.

Speaking exclusively to MailOnline, Dr Rajeev Singh said his patient had suffered from bouts of vomiting and lost weight but his family had no idea why.

It was only when surgeons operated on Monday that they discovered the grim cause behind his illness.

A lot of really weird things happen in this part of the world. That being said, there have been only 200 cases of this in the world, but that won’t stop me from worrying about it!
