Egyptian Doctors Remove Baby’s Second Head

Manarmaged_1BENHA, Egypt — Egyptian doctors said they removed a second head from a 10-month-old girl suffering from one of the rarest birth defects in an operation Saturday … Manar Maged was in a serious but improving condition after the procedure to treat her for craniopagus parasiticus — a problem related to that of conjoined twins linked at the skull.

"We are still working on the baby. After surgery … you get unstable blood pressure, you get fever. But she is stabilizing," paediatric consultant Abla el-Alfy said. "We have some improvement."
