Medical → Manar Maged... and her parasitic head (Set 1)
A nurse holds an Egyptian 10-month-old baby named Manar Maged with a parasitic head in a hospital in the city of Banha, 25 miles, north of Cairo (Egypt) (Feb., 2005).
Manar Maged of Egypt became the first baby to survive an operation to remove a parasitic head, but she died in March of 2006 of a persistent infection in her brain.
Manar Maged (March 30, 2004 - March 25, 2006) was an Egyptian girl, born with an extremely rare medical condition called craniopagus parasiticus (sometimes called "parasitic twin"): a type of conjoined twin where the twins are attached at the head and one fails to develop completely in the womb, becoming completely dependent upon the other.
On 19 February, 2005, Manar underwent a thirteen-hour operation in Benha, Egypt, to remove her twin. The operation was successful, and by 28 May she had recovered enough to go home. Her twin, who had been named Islaam, died on the operating table when the separation was carried out, and was buried by her family.
Manar died following a severe brain infection on March 25, 2006, 13 months after her successful operation.

|Ohhh I saw this on a tv show. Glad the little girl survived....glad the other head didnt...that would be a crappy-ass life...|

|how the hell did her mom give birth?!|
|I watched this shit on TV. The other child that wasn't |
all the way developed was concious. Very much
Alive, breathing, blinking, it could even cry. They
should have just let nature run its course. Maybe
then both children could have lived longer then they
|omg i watched a documentry about it and the surgery and was consious because it could suck things like a dummy for example but it had it removed because it was sharing the same blood supply and the baby had heart problems eg weakness of the heart|
|I hope the baby without the body parts wasnt conscious at all in its life. :(|
|Lul, potato body.|
