Indian 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. They successfully operated to remove the 7cm mass which they now suspect was a rare 'fetus in fetu' twin pregnancy - one of less than 200 ever recorded in the world. The mother and her son from Mumbai, are now both healthy and doing well.
