Brazil Two Headed Baby

Brazil Two Headed Baby, A two-headed born baby is pictured in Anajas, northern Brazil December 21, 2011. Doctors in Brazil said on Wednesday said they are unsure whether they can operate on a baby born with two heads, although the newborn boy is in stable condition.
The “twins”, named Jesus and Emanuel, have two brains, two backbones and a single heart. A Brazilian mother has given birth to a baby boy with two heads – an apparent case of a very rare conjoined anomaly called dicephalic parapagus.
The twin boys, Jesus and Emanuel, were born early Monday and share one body and one heart, reports local newspaper O Povo.
One baby is healthy, while the other has breathing difficulties, a hospital statement said of the babies born in Marajo, Para, in northern Brazil.
The extremely rare twins were transferred to hospital in Belem on Tuesday for medical evaluations, a day after their delivery by caesarian section.
The 23-year-old mother had some prenatal care, but did not have any ultrasounds before the birth.
The case is not completely unheard of, the most known and documented case being that of Abigail and Brittany Hensel of the United States, who are now 19 years old.
More recently, in May, a baby girl was born in China with two heads. Doctors said it wasn’t possible to separate the girls, as they, too, share only one body.
