A Chinese baby born with two heads

The little girl, or twins merged, would have two heads, two vertebral columns and two esophagi

Should we speak of a single child or two? This delicate question arises concerning the two-headed girl born Thursday in the Chinese province of Sichuan (southwest), whose birth was announced by the official Chinese media.

The photos distributed by the newspapers show a baby's body with two arms and two legs, with a rib cage slightly larger than normal heads surmounted by two distinct and quite hairy. The child weighs 4 kg, is 51 cm and has two spines, two esophagus but has only one copy of other organs.

Chinese doctors on site exclude any hypothesis of a possible separation, as can be sometimes with the conjoined twins. The Siamese twins are joined at the other by a body part, usually the chest, while two-headed child could result from twins fused.

The birth of conjoined twins is a rare phenomenon. It is a malformation in a monozygotic twin pregnancy: the separation of the egg splits to form two identical twins is incomplete. These anomalies are rare in developed countries where they are detected through routine ultrasound and where abortion is generally given. The majority of Siamese do not survive.
