Woman Carrying A Dead Baby In Her Uterus For 60 Years

Share

Doctors who have examined an old woman that addressed them with complaints of pains in the abdomen were totally perplexed. They have found that the old lady was pregnant. More than that, the unborn baby had been kept inside the woman for more than 60 years.

The history of pregnancy of Huang Yuidjun, 92, from Huandjaotan (South China) had started in 1948. At that time, the doctors told her that the baby had died before being born and that she needed a surgical operation in order to remove the fetus from her uterus. The doctors asked 200 dollars for that operation, but Huang had refused to give that sum of money.

"In those times this was a huge sum of money, it was more than many families were earning per year. That's why I decided not to do anything and simply ignored it", said Mrs. Yuidjun.

But the dead fetus in the uterus of the old woman had recently reminded the woman of its existence. Huang had received a trauma of her abdomen and her inner organs had started to ache. The Chinese woman had addressed the doctors for help and they have directed her to Ultrasonography scanning. The results were shocking.

"I could not believe my own eyes when it turned out that Yuidjun has a baby in her uterus. I haven't seen anything more surprising and more strange in all my 40 years of practice as a doctor", confessed Dr. Lyu Anbin from the Gwingshen hospital.

The doctors didn't let go of the old lady. She was admitted to the hospital for other auxiliary researches. The most important thing now is to determine whether an operation and removal of the baby from Yuidjun's uterus are necessary.

According to the consultant of the gynecology section from the respective hospital, Xu Xyanming, "usually the dead fetus is being disintegrated, but this case is a rare one. It isn't clear yet how comes that Mrs. Yuidjun has been in a good state of health all this time."
