"Since the child was born, he had a swelling in his stomach. When it aggravated, we took him to the hospital, where he was operated," said Shiv Yadav, Ritesh's father. Doctors at the Patna Medical College and Hospital (PMCH) in Betia district, where Ritesh was operated upon, said the condition appeared to be a "foetus in foeto" or inclusion twin.

Doctors said the condition is extremely rare and happens when two foetuses are conceived as conjoined twins in the uterus. One enters into the other during pregnancy. "After the investigation we got to know it was an undeveloped foetus. It had legs, hands, hair and we could make out that it was a male child. It is an extremely rare case," said N.K.Singh, Head of Department of Surgery, PMCH hospital.

Doctors said Ritesh was in a good condition after the operation and the foetus was preserved for more investigations. Hundreds of curious locals flocked to the hospital on hearing a rumour that a boy had given birth to a baby.

In April 2003, doctors at a Children's Hospital in Kazakhstan discovered a dead foetus of a twin brother when operating on a seven-year-old boy. The foetus had developed into a tumour but was found to have hair, nails and bones.
