Newborn Baby Born With Foot in Brain

17 12 2008

An extremely interesting medical case was disclosed today at Neuroscience News.

A baby was born with a foot, hand, thigh and intestinal pieces in its brain. Brain surgery was performed in Colorado and the baby seems to be doing well other than a few minor problems that need to be addressed such as visual processing problems.

I’ve seen my share of medical abnormalities in medical books, odd websites and other means, but this one has to be one of the strangest.

Neuroscience continues to awe me and the fact that the baby is doing fairly well following such an intensive brain surgery is incredible.

My best wishes go out to the family and the incredible baby.

Foot in a brain

This photo isn’t of this case, but close enough to give an idea of what a foot in the brain would look like.
