26-year-old Yamini Karanam is a Ph.D. student at the Indiana University. She started facing difficulties in reading and listening since September last year. She had difficulties while eating and always felt a pain radiating from her head to her whole body. She went on to take proper medical help and doctors suspected that she had a tumour in her brain, but later to everyone's surprise they found that it is actually an embryonic twin.
Medically known as "Teratoma", she even had hair, bone, and teeth formed inside her brain. Doctors at Los Angeles-based Skull Base Institute performed a minimally-invasive surgery to remove the teratoma.
Yamini in a light mood joked that the teratoma was her "evil sister" that was torturing her since 26 years!
She even started facing problems in consuming food and felt a pain from her head that radiated to her whole body.
In medical terms, it is known as teratoma.
