Baby is born with & # 39; THREE heads & # 39 ;: little girl is born in India with head like protrusions on her skull while doctors prepare to operate
- The amazing baby was born earlier this month in the Etah district of Uttar Pradesh
- Doctors said they were surprised because the mother had a normal pregnancy
- The baby will now undergo surgery if doctors try to remove two nodules
A remarkable baby is born with three heads in India, who has stunned doctors.
The unique birth took place on July 11 in a primary care center in the Etah district in Uttar Pradesh.
The pregnant mother, from the Pilua village in the district, was admitted to the health center after suffering extreme pain during the construction of her birth.
Family members and doctors, however, remained & # 39; in shock & # 39; when she was a baby with three & # 39; heads & # 39; delivered.
The baby was born with two extra growths on the back of his head in the Etah district in Uttar Pradesh
Aside from the usual head, the girl has two large protrusions formed from the back of her skull.
& # 39; The girl child had three heads. She looked like an alien, "said Bijji Thakur, who witnessed the bizarre birth.
In addition, doctors said they were stunned to see the woman deliver the abnormal child despite having a normal pregnancy.
She was later referred to the district hospital in Etah because the primary health center did not have the proper medical facilities.
Doctors said they would perform a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan to determine the exact medical condition of the newborn.
Doctors remained stumped by the tumors and willing to work on the child shortly after it was born
& # 39; This is a very rare medical condition, & # 39; stated Rajesh Thakur, Chief Medical Superintendent, District Hospital, Etah.
& # 39; The child's body is not yet fully developed. We will perform an MRI scan and then perform surgery on the & # 39; heads & # 39; to separate.
Although rare, countless cases of extra heads have been reported worldwide, especially in African countries.
These medical conditions are called Encephalocele.
According to the NHS, an encephalocele is a rare congenital type of neural tube defect in which a part of the skull is not properly formed, so that part of the brain tissue and associated structures are outside the skull.
According to reports, babies & # 39; s diagnosed with encephalocele have a survival rate of 55 percent.
The long-term survival prognosis becomes less likely if there are other complications, such as associated defects or syndromes, or if brain tissue is in the pocket.
Doctors said they were stunned to see how the woman delivered the abnormal child despite having a normal pregnancy
About 75 percent of these infants who do survive have a different degree of mental deficit.
Earlier on March 4, an expert team of neurosurgeons from the Sher-e-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences (SKIMS) successfully operated on a baby with two heads.
According to reports, the newborn's father had tried to bury him alive because he was afraid he would not be able to afford his treatment.
He was rescued by the police near the city of Nowhatta in Jammu and Kashmir.
Doctors were able to separate the abnormal brain from the normal brain along with the skin after three hours of difficult surgery.
The baby was later adopted by his uncle.
In yet another case, a 5-month-old baby suffering from occipital encephalocele was given new life after the giant protrusions around his head were removed after surgery at Sapthagiri Hospital in Bengaluru, the capital of the state of Karnataka.
