    Operation removes "Second Head", yes an "extra" one, from a little girl! And you thought only guys had 2 heads!

    It is glorious that things like this can be corrected! Just amazing! Also sad if the other "twin" was able to be aware. Very happy/sad.

    Totally bizarre...you have to wonder if the other head was alive and able to have cognitive functions, know what was going on and interact with the envirnoment....its kind of sad too.

    Yeah it's not something that I would want to see with out warning but it's on the my.yahoo.com most emailed pictures section so it can't be that bad.

    I am still going to sue, for posting that with no warning and just leave that image as a link! :D

    That is disgusting anyway. Could we have a disgusting images forum here?

    PS: I love taking advantages of teasing the idiot suits.

    Hmmm...I guess this is happy in that it looks like this girl might be all right...but there was a brain inside that other head....wow, sad. :( I guess it's better that some life truly live, but still sad.

    It's real, all right. All too real. Can you imagine being the doctor delivering that kid and seeing that?

    I heard something on CNN about the second head blinking and smiling but that those functions were being controlled by the first head.

    Glad the operation was successful, though.

    I actually kind of wish that there were more pictures... looks really interesting.

    Also, performing an operation like this would be so horrible... I mean, not only would you have to be unbelievably careful to hopefully avoid killing the regular child, but also... the other piece had a brain, and was able to move and such... I can't imagine it.

    I doubt the other head was able to do much, think, etc.
    View it as this, instead of a "head":
    It is just a tumor, a growth, an unwanted (albeit large) piece of skin.
    Taken from that angle, it was just a tricky operation.

    These things happen and are very sad.
    In places where people can easily get to a hospital to get an echo now and then to see what's going on. 'Abnormalities' (don't want to start a discussion on the contents of that word) will be seen very early, and maybe an abortion would be 'advised' by the doctor (this is a toppic prolly worth it's own thread). On the other hand, for some medical issues the foetus can be operated on. Inside there that is - which is quite nice i'd say.

    When a baby like this, or like others ís born i'm very happy for the parents and the kid(s) if at least one of them gets saved.
    But it looks a bit creepy indeed.

    Such a very sad story. Very happy that Manar is improving. A very difficult thing with which to deal, especially when the head that couldn't sustain independent life would a times smile and wink. My prayers go out to Manar, her parents, family, and friends.

    Yeah, I think it was Photoshopped too. Just another stupid journalist making up a story to boost their pathetic career.

    wow, i wonder how often things like this happen, but we don't hear about it, i just hope that the kid is alright

    looks like the mother was going to have twins, but the second one didnt make it, and that the split obviously didnt complete, thats sad

    That's pretty freaky. To think the other head was alive and conscious, so meaning the head had a soul, but no body in which to sustain life. Seriously, that is freaky.

    i read, on CNN i think, that this was a very complex surgery. they had to separate the nerves, blood vessels, and muscles. the doctors had to keep Manar's blood pressure from increasing too much once they removed the extra head. if they weren't careful,. then Manar could have had a cardiac arrest.

    wasn't there another baby born similar to this a few months ago?

    It wasn't really alive and conscious so much as it was 'repeating' the actions that the original head was sending to it.

    Consider my above post. It is really a soul, a complete being? Or is it a abnormal growth?

    Just something to think about.
