The ten-month-old girl, identified only as Dominique, was taken from the Ivory Coast to a hospital in the US for a rare and complex six-hour operation performed by a team led by five surgeons
She was born with four legs and two spines from a parasitic twin which protruded from her neck and back.
A team led by five surgeons operated on the little girl for six hours, and she is said to be thriving following the rare procedure on March 8.
Doctors who performed the surgery at Advocate Children’s Hospital, in the Chicago suburb of Park Ridge, said the bottom half of the parasitic twin’s undeveloped body was protruding from Dominique’s neck and back
