RABAT, Morocco -- A 75-year-old woman who complained of stomach pains was found to have been carrying a calcified fetus -- a "stone baby" -- for 46 years, doctors said.
The doctors said they removed a 3.5-kilogram fetus they believe had been lodged in the woman's abdomen since an ectopic pregnancy in 1956.
Doctors said the woman, who said she'd last been pregnant in 1956, had refused a caesarean section when she was unable to deliver the fetus, which had developed outside the uterus, and never had it removed.
