It's Not a Tumah! It's a Foot!

Dr. Paul Grabb thought he was removing a benign tumor from a newborn's brain. Instead, he found a tiny foot:

Grabb said he could not tell whether the miniature limbs were from a benign stem cell tumor called a teratoma or the remnants of an identical twin that did not split off and survive, a condition called fetus in fetu.

"It looked like the breach delivery of a baby, coming out of the brain," Grabb told The Associated Press. "To find a perfectly formed structure is extremely unique, unusual, borderline unheard of."
