Doctors discover teeth growing inside baby's brain
Published: 5 hours ago (192 Views)
Doctors have discovered a tumour with teeth growing out of it in a baby's brain.

The rare cancer was found in a four-month-old patient in Maryland, United States, last year but details of it have just been released in a medical journal.
It was reportedly the first instance of teeth being discovered in a particular brain tumour, called the adamantinomatous craniopharyngioma.
The baby's cancer has since been removed through surgery and he is now said to be doing well.
'It's not every day you see teeth in any type of tumour in the brain. In a craniopharyngioma, it's unheard of,' said neurosurgeon Dr Narlin Beaty, who operated on the infant.
The article in the New England Journal of Medicine added the tumour had been discovered near the boy's pituitary gland after tests revealed his head was growing at an increased rate.

The tumour measured 4.1cm by 4cm by 3.5cm
