두개의 입을 가지고 태어난 6개월 여아...제거 수술 성공


1900년 이후 단 35명만 발생 희귀 질환


   생후 6개월 된 여자 아이가 입술과 치아, 혀로 완성된 두 번째 입을 제거하는 수술을 받았다.

임신 28주 스캔에서 처음 발견되었을 때 낭종이나 종양이 있을 수 있다고 생각되었다.




이 어린 소녀가 미 사우스 캐롤라이나의 찰스턴에서 태어났을 때, 의사들은 이 0.8인치 물체가 실제로 두 번째 입이라는 것을 발견했습니다.


그녀는 1900년 이후 디프로소푸스 즉 이중안체로 알려진 35명 중 한 명이다.


의사들은 BMJ Case Reports 저널에 그녀의 두 번째 입은 기능과 아무런 관련이 없으며, 정상적으로 호흡하고, 먹고, 마실 수 있다고 말했다.


그 어린 소녀는 입원 수술로 여분의 장기를 제거할 수 있었다. 이것은 다른 입의 뼈를 지탱하는 치아를 제거하기 위해 그녀의 하악골에 구멍을 뚫는 것과 관련이 있다.

A six-month-old baby girl has undergone an operation to remove her second mouth, which was complete with lips, teeth and tongue.




When the mass was first spotted in scans at week 28 of pregnancy it was thought to be a possible cyst or tumour.


But when the little girl was born in Charleston, South Carolina, doctors found the 0.8-inch object was actually a second mouth.


She is one of just 35 people known to have suffered from Diprosopus - or duplication of facial parts - since 1900.


 

The little girl had the 0.8-inch mouth removed from her face after she was born in Charleston, South Carolina. 


It occasionally had a raw surface and would produce a clear liquid thought to be saliva




Writing in the journal BMJ Case Reports, the doctors said her second mouth had no connection to the main mouth, and that she could breath, eat and drink normally.


They added it would sometimes produce a clear liquid - possibly saliva - and at times a raw surface would appear around it.


The little girl was admitted for surgery so the extra organ could be removed. This involved drilling down on her mandible to remove extra bone supporting teeth for the other mouth.
