Colombian Doctors Find A 40-Year-Old Fetus Inside An 82-Year-Old Woman

A woman from Bogota, originally thought to be suffering from a stomach bug, was found to have a 40-year-old fetus inside her, according to a report on NTD TVThe 82-year-old Colombian lady had been suffering from stomach pains, caused by what is known as ‘lithopedion‘, or stone baby, when the unborn child develops outside the womb.

Initially the 82-year-old woman was thought to be suffering from gastro-enteritis, an infectious form of diarrhea, when a radiography exam at Bogota’s Tunjuelito Hospital discovered the fetus on Monday, December 9th. Dr. Kemer Ramirez explained,

“An 82-year-old patient who arrived at emergency services on December 8 with diarrhea and in the medical exam the medic who was looking over (the patient) noted something abnormal in her abdomen and ordered an exam thinking that perhaps it was gallstones. An ultrasound was done and it wasn’t positive. Then, an abdominal radiography was ordered which located a tumor in the abdominal cavity which concluded that it was a fetus in the woman’s abdomen,” 

Local media reported that the fetus had been inside the woman for some 40 years, the result of a rare medical phenomena known as lithopedion where a fetus does not develop in the uterus but the abdominal.

“This happens because the fetus does not develop in the uterus because it has moved to another place. In this case, the abdominal part of the woman is not a viable (place) and this is what happened, a calcified fetus because the body is generating defense mechanisms and it is calcified until it stays there encapsulated,” explained Ramirez.

The patient is thought to have been transferred to another hospital to have the lithopedion removed.

In 2009, a 92-year-old Chinese woman was found to have a 60-year-old ‘stone baby’ inside her. The first reported case of lithopedion was Madame Colombe Chatri, a 68-year-old French woman.

An autopsy after her death in 1582 revealed she had been carrying a fully-developed stone baby in her abdominal cavity for 28 years.
