40-Year-Old Fetus Found In 82-Year-Old Colombian Woman

by at . Comments

An 82 year old Colombian woman went to the doctor complaining that her stomach hurt. Doctors found a 40-year old fetus, calcified, inside her abdomen.

So many odd "I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant" thoughts happening right now.

The 40-year-old fetus was the result of an ectopic pregnancy, which occurs when the fertilized egg implants outside the uterus. These pregnancies aren't viable and most of the time are caught by doctors and removed.

But in about 300 cases since 1582, a lithopedion, i.e. a "stone baby," has formed.

Lithopedia occurs when the fetus dies and the body calcifies it in order to protect the mother. Women carrying a stone baby remain unaware of its existence until or unless another issue arises.

Doctors in Colombia thought the 82-year-old woman had gastroenteritis. She will undergo surgery this month to remove her stone baby.
