A Colombian woman suffering from stomach pain was found to have a 40-year-old foetus inside her.
The 82-year-old, from Bogota, had what is known as ‘lithopedion’
Also called a ‘stone baby’, it’s when the foetus develops outside the womb
The woman will now will undergo surgery to have the foetus – mostly comprised of dead tissue – removed
The woman was originally thought to be suffering from a stomach bug, NTD TV reports.
But scans revealed lithopedion, where the foetus becomes classified. There are fewer than 300 cases reported in medical literature.
