Girl's twin found inside her stomach

Girl's twin found inside her stomach -

"A nine-year-old girl who went to hospital suffering from stomach pains was found to be carrying her embryonic twin, doctors in central Greece said Thursday.

Doctors at Larissa General Hospital examined the girl and surgically removed a growth they later discovered was an embryo about six centimeters (more than two inches) long.

'They could see on the right side that her belly was swollen, but they couldn't suspect that this tumor would hide an embryo,' hospital director Iakovos Brouskelis said.

The girl has made a full recovery, he said."
