A baby has been discovered growing inside a woman’s liver in ‘exceptionally rare’ ectopic pregnancy.
Paediatrician Michael Narvey of Children’s Hospital Research Institute of Manitoba in Canada who shared the discovery on his TikTok account @nicu_musings, said sometimes babies are seen in the abdomen but never in the liver.
“I thought I had seen it all – a 33-year-old woman comes in with a 14-day history of menstrual bleeding and 49 days since her last menstrual period.
“What they find in the liver is this: a baby.
“She had an ectopic pregnancy in her liver.
“We see these sometimes in the abdomen but never in the liver. This is a first for me.”
Surgeons were able to save the woman’s life but not that of the growing foetus. The video the medical doctor shared has been viewed more than 3million times in just two days and attracted nearly 17,000 comments.
