Medics discovered the half-formed baby – complete with a brain, arm and legs – behind the otherwise-healthy new baby boy’s stomach after he was born.
“The parasitic baby was lying behind the stomach deriving its nutrition from the host.
“The parasitic baby has been sent for further testing, reports are awaited.
“The parasitic baby is a male of about 3 inches in length, weighing around five ounces and of abnormal development.”
Doctors successfully operated to remove the 3 inch mass which they now suspect was a rare Foetus
When the baby was born nine days later on July 20 he scanned the baby and found “another small baby” inside the newborn’s abdomen.
Dr Thorat added: “It was inside a foetal sac of the newborn.
“I could see bones of the upper and lower limbs of the foetus.
