STRANGE TUMOUR: DOCTORS REMOVE FOOT, HAND AND THIGH FROM BABY'S BRAIN [VIEWER DISCRETION]

Post by SKOOKID on Thu Aug 08, 2013 9:10 am



In this report, you will learn of a rare, strange brain tumour which can result to a foot, and other body parts growing out of a child's brain.

How is this even possible? I'm sure you're wondering....see report below:

A doctor has removed a brain tumor from a newborn baby which contained an almost perfectly formed foot and parts of another foot, a hand and a thigh.

The incredible discovery was made by pediatric
neurosurgeon Dr Paul Grabb in Colorado, America, when he operated on three-day old Sam Esquibel after an MRI scan showed a microscopic tumour on his brain.

The finding in the otherwise healthy baby is so unheard of it could come straight out of Greek mythology in which king of the gods Zeus produced his daughter Athena fully-grown from his forehead.



'Unique': The foot found inside the baby's brain New photos of the operation show the blood vessels inside the tumour, which also included other partially-formed body parts including a second foot, a hand and a thigh.

Doctors now believe that the condition was probably a teratoma, a type of tumour that contains hair, teeth, bones and body organs but usually does not occur in the brain.



Another theory is that Sam suffered from a condition called fetus in foetus in which one twin envelops the other, but the disorder is so rare that there have been fewer than 100 reported incidents in the world.

Neurosurgeon Dr Paul Grabb, who led a team that operated on Sam's brain at Colorado Springs Memorial Central, described the moment that
he opened the tumour and the foot was revealed.

"A lot of us who have been in practice long enough like to think we've seen everything," he said. "Well, we haven't. The foot quite literally popped out of the tumour. I stopped operating, since I'm not used to
seeing a foot in the brain."

Grabb is not sure what caused the growth but said it may have been a type of congenital brain tumour.
I'm still short of words. The kinds bizarre stuff I come across daily....*shivers*...strange world we live in...
