‘Pregnant’ baby in Thane born with twin brother feeding off his body
In a rare medical condition, a newborn baby in Thane was found with his half-formed twin brother 'feeding' off his blood supply. The condition, called fetus in fetu, is so rare that only about 100-200 such cases have been reported from all over the world till date.

The 7cm complete foetus with a brain, arms and limbs, was found behind the baby’s stomach feeding off his nutrition and posed a life threat. A radiologist first spotted the abnormal mass during a routine scan of the pregnant mother and it was successfully removed by a specialist team of experts.
