Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A 3-day-old boy baby presented with a cystic umbilical swelling covered mostly by skin and partly by amnion. On the surface, an early embryo-like structure was attached (facial features and limb buds). The deeper aspect of it was composed of large cystic and tubular structures and solid organs resembling liver and spleen. It was labeled as acardiac amorphous parasitic twin, the first of its kind to be reported.
