Fetus in Fetu: A Case Report & Review of Literatures
Fetus- in- fetu is a rare abnormality secondary to the abnormal embryogenesis in a diamniotic, monochorionic pregnancy. It is a rare pathological condition and fewer than 200 cases have been reported in the literature. We are reporting a case in which a 15 year old girl presented with a painful lump in left upper abdomen. Preoperative imaging, exploration and macroscopic examination of the excised specimen revealed it a case of fetus- in - fetu. This case is unique in terms of age of presentation and mature fetus like external appearance.
