    ewww....I'm wondering how the fetus died......
    RABAT (Reuters) - Moroccan surgeons have relieved a 75-year-old woman of what she thought was a long-standing tumor but turned out to be the remains of a 46-year-old fetus, Moroccan newspapers said Thursday.

    The woman had complained of abdominal pains, so she underwent surgery in July by a team led by Professor Taibi Ouazzani in Rabat's Avicennes hospital, the newspapers Al Ahdath al-Maghribia and L'Opinion said.

    How the team determined how long the woman had carried the fetus was not disclosed, and officials at Avicennes were not immediately available for comment.

    Ouazzani's team plans to show a video about the surgery at a news conference Friday.

    This goes under news of the weird.....yuck!

    There are so many things that can be said here, but all of them would just make it more discusting. Not going there.

    Thanks so much for sharing this with us all.

    Heh. That's a really interesting medical case, kinda like that woman with the 306lb cyst growing out of her stomach.

    I don't think I've heard that one DreaminDirector, but that is equally gross.

    searching...

    I'll try an find the story. I know I heard about it in the past year or so. If I find it, I'll post a link.

    That 306lbs cyst is pretty gross too. Maybe we should start a thread on the weirdest news stories.

    hmmmm.... if I find the head fetus link....

    That's an amazing story! My question is how it was missed for 46 years?
