The Ogudu area of Lagos state was thrown into frenzy, following the birth of a baby girl with two heads.
A baby with two heads was born at Med-In Specialist Hospital, Osogbo Street, Ogudu, Lagos on Tuesday at about 6.30PM, through an elective caesarean section.
According to reports, the baby has two heads with oxygen tube strapped on each. She equally has a neck, chest, two legs and two hands. It is a rare form of partial twinning where there are two heads and two necks side by side on one torso, known as Parapagus
The baby was resuscitated and transferred to the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) for advance care, The case According to Med-In Hospital Manager Dare Moses, the baby was taken to LUTH so that tests can be conducted to ascertain if they share also vital organs like hearts and lungs.
“There is need to find out if they share major organs together. They may have to be flown abroad for separation if they have separate hearts and other vital organs. It is possible for them to survive. I have seen cases of twins like this in movie surviving and living normal lives.
“Normally, when we have cases of pregnant woman expecting twins, we usually go for elective caesarean, which was what the mother opted for.
“But when the doctor was trying to extract one of the babies (first one), it got stuck and when he examined further, he discovered that there were two heads in one body. We are happy that the baby was delivered alive and placed on oxygen. Both heads were alive”, he said.
