Indian girl born with heart and part of liver growing outside body

SURGEONS in India will attempt to save the life of a baby girl who was born with her heart and part of her liver growing outside her body.

The four-day-old girl is currently being cared for at the Bengal medical college on the outskirts of the northeastern Indian city of Siliguri.

"This is a very rare case, we are not sure if we can perform surgery to put her heart and liver back, but we'll try our best," a child specialist Miridula Chatterjee said.

Last year then two-year-old Lakshmi Tatma, who was born with eight limbs and a parasitic trunk of a conjoined twin with a shared kidney, underwent surgery in the southeastern Indian city of Bangalore.

The surgery took 27 hours and Lakshmi has been able to live a relatively normal life since.

She has taken her first steps but requires ongoing corrective surgery to internal organs, her limbs and spine, according to the TimesOnline.
