Abstract :

Fetus in Fetu (FIF) is a rare congenital anomaly in which a malformed parasitic twin is found within the body of a living child or adult. In this case report, a new born male child presented with a large abdominal mass and diagnosed on routine screening investigation at our nursery unit. Imaging studies confirmed the presence of a large retroperitoneal fetus in fetu with significant mass effect of the adjacent structures. A surgical resection was performed and pathology confirmed the diagnosis. These rare cases have less frequently reported and a review of the literature show up to 200 cases which describe the demographics, updated genetic findings, pathology and outcomes of this unusual tumor. Recent revive of past literature does not show any case report from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. In contrast, will also discuss cases such as off fail parasitic twining and teratomas that may warrant a longer follow-up.
