Skeleton found in woman's womb

By Sowetan LIVE | Aug 25, 2014 | COMMENTS [ 19 ]

A 38-year-old skeleton was found camping out in a woman's womb after she complained of stomach pain.

Kantabai Thakre who is now 60, had an ectopic pregnancy at an early age. Back then, she was told that the fetus— growing outside of her womb — would not survive, the Daily Mail reports.

"She apparently knew that the baby had died and that she would need an operation, and we gathered she got scared at the prospect of surgery and so went away to her village without undergoing the operation."

According to doctors, Kumar's case is the longest ectopic pregnancy ever recorded.

After recently experiencing pain and urinary problems with fever, as the mass compressed the urinary system, compromising the functioning of the kidneys - doctors discovered a mature skeleton encapsulated in a calcified sac.

"The amniotic fluid that protects the fetus might have been absorbed and the soft tissues liquefied over time with only a bag of bones with some fluid remaining."
