    incredible...I read an article about a little boy in Southeast Asia who complained of pain in the abdomen and the doctors found out that he was carrying his twin. When his mother was pregnant, initially there were two embryos, however later on they found out that one fused into the other and the result above. The baby that came out of the little boy had a face, arms, legs, and other distinct features.
    We get caught. How? Not by what we give but by what we expect. We get misery in return for our love; not from the fact that we love, but from the fact that we want love in return. There is no misery where there is no want.

    Fascinating idea though, but in practice, I can't see such a procedure ever being approved for testing due to the risks involved...

    Though as a woman, I am *all* for the idea of new and exciting research into the field of male pregnancy.

    its a fake website.
    i seen this site before. and there is absolutely no contact or real physical address, phone number, etc anywhere on that site. you figure a "medical center" that sophitiscated would have these info on itself

    probably a teratoma and not a real 'twin'.. story was probably abd pain, surgery, teratoma with hair, teeth, maybe eyes... a month later it has a face, 3 months later the story grows and so does the teratoma as it now has arms and legs. the following year it turns out that a neighbor told a cousin that a roommate told them that they heard iot from a office manager's maid that she had originally been pregannt with twins and one of thewm ate the other...

    this is similar to a story in the enquirer actually from the 90's

    Probably not... SE Asia... this story?

    This seems like the same type of condition as the 'parasitic twin', which I believe is most frequently the torso of the engulfed twin, which leeches blood, a condition that can be fatal if left untreated.

    And there's this incredibly creepy-looking rare form of it (see external links)

    i have read about this before but notice how the parasitic twin is outside the body cavity of the other... i did a quick search of medical websites and no condition as fetus in fetus is described... notice the following quote from the bbc website:

    "The foetus had developed into a tumour but was found to have hair, nails and bones."

    sounds like a well developed teratoma doesn't it? i wonder if they have path labs in these remote hospitals or is it just a clinical description...i can imagine how doing surgery on a child and finding a mass of hair, teeth, nails, etc can lead to the assumption of a twin in the patient... who knows

    back to work

    You're right; it does sound like it... I would imagine a twin could partially develop inside the other twin, but what would surprise me is that such a condition wouldn't be fatal long before the other child was 7...
