A woman was shocked to find out she was still carrying the baby she thought she aborted 15 years ago.
The 52-year-old woman, from Nagpur, northern India, had aborted her pregnancy because her family were said to not be in favour of another child. Unknown to her, the baby had remained in her abdomen and it had turned into a calcified foetus.
She had only become aware of the “stone baby” when she decided to seek medical attention for her abdominal pain and persistent nausea. The woman became extremely concerned when she stopped menstruating five years ago, so she met with a specialist at Junankar Surgical Nursing Home.
Dr Nilesh Junankar said: “Her CAT scan showed intestinal obstruction, a blockage in her food pipe along with a stone like structure. Due to this unusual report, a laparoscopy was done and to our utter surprise, there was a four-month old baby in the abdomen. We were very shocked. It’s extremely rare.”
In a two hour operation, doctors managed to successfully remove the fully grown “stone baby” on November 23. A stone baby, or Lithopedion as it is called in medical terms, is extremely rare. Only 300 such cases have been reported in the past 400 years worldwide.
Dr Junankar added: “The chance of abdominal pregnancy is one in 11,000 pregnancies and only between 1.5 to 1.8% of abdominal pregnancies develop into Lithopedia.
“We have removed the stone baby from woman’s body and her four feet intestines have also been removed.”
The woman thanked the hospital for freeing her from a decade of pain and has since been discharged from the hospital.

NATO defense ministers will discuss on Wednesday their next steps if Moscow keeps the missile system that the United States says would allow short-notice nuclear attacks on Europe and break the 1987 Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF).
“We call on Russia to take the responsible path, but we have seen no indication that Russia intends to do so,” Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg told a news conference. “We will need to respond,” Stoltenberg said.
He declined to go into more details. But diplomats said defense ministers will consider more flights over Europe by U.S. warplanes capable of carrying nuclear warheads, more military training and the repositioning U.S. sea-based missiles.
The United States and its NATO allies want Russia to destroy its 9M729/SSC-8 nuclear-capable cruise missile system, which Moscow has so far refused to do. It denies any violations of the INF treaty, accusing Washington of seeking an arms race.
Without a deal, the United States has said it will withdraw from the INF treaty on Aug. 2, removing constraints on its own ability to develop nuclear-capable, medium-range missile.
The dispute has deepened a fissure in East-West ties that severely deteriorated after Russia’s seizure of Crimea and its involvement in Syria.
