The Hong Kong Medical Journal reports that in November 2010 a newborn girl was born. Insider her were two 8 to 10-week-old fetuses. One weighed half an ounce. The other weighed a third of an ounce. Ech had four limbs, a spine, a rib cage, intestines, and an anus.

“Since it is impossible for the little girl to have conceived the pregnancy on her own, the fertilization of the twin fetuses, of course, belongs to her parents, which has gone to the wrong place,” a local medic tells the South China Morning Post.

At the tender age two week, the girl was operated on. The fetuses were removed.

Is it rare, this fetus in fetu condition?

Yes. But not rare enough: it occurs in 1 in 500,000 births worldwide.

End of days, readers, end of days. (But it does put teenage pregnancies into some perspective.)
