Baby born with two heads, three hands and two hearts after doctors told his mother to expect twins

A MOTHER has given birth to a baby born with two heads, three hands and two hearts due to a rare condition.

Doctors initially told Ratlam’s Shaheen Khan, Indiathat she was expecting twins during an ultrasound.

But to the medics’ shock, it was discovered that she was carrying two children linked by a torso.

The infants are reportedly the subject of a rare anomaly called dicephalic parapagus.

The condition, which occurs in the womb, is usually considered fatal and often results in stillbirth.

However, doctors say they have no plans to try and operate after the child survives the “first few days”.

The miracle baby was admitted to a hospital in the nearby town of Indore while her mother continues to receive treatment in Ratlam.

It remains unclear whether the new arrival will be treated as conjoined twins or as one child, as theories about his official definition continue to circulate online.

A doctor treating Mrs Khan’s child, Dr. Lahoti said: “This type of cases is rare and the condition of babies remains uncertain, especially in the first few days.

“That’s why we kept them under surveillance.

“We have no surgery planned on the patient.”

A couple last year Siamese twins were separated after undergoing a grueling 16-hour surgery by medical miracles.

The operation, in which any mistake could have been fatal, required a team of 25 medical workers, including 10 surgeons.

Noor ul Owase Jeelani of Great Ormond Street, who led the operation, said: “You still see yourself as one person – it’s hard for us to imagine being so connected to anyone.”
