Narendra Kumar had suffered from chronic stomach pains, vomiting and permanent weight loss since childhood until one day...
The 18-year-old was rushed to hospital with acute pain in abdomen and after thorough medical investigation was diagnosed with a rare condition called foetus in fetu.
It means Narendra was born with a malformed twin brother inside his body, who had been feeding off him all his life.
The parasite formed an umbilical cord-like structure and managed to grow up to 20kg and even developed teeth and 2m long hair.
Dr Rajeev Singh, who performed a surgery to remove the unusual growth, later commented on the incident:
A parasitic twin is the result of the processes that also produce vanishing twins and conjoined twins, and may represent a continuum between the two.
The undeveloped twin is defined as parasitic because it is incompletely formed or wholly dependent on the body functions of the complete fetus.
