Oddity
    (March 30, 2004- )
    Born near Benha, Egypt
    Born with craniopagus parasiticus, a very rare birth defect that occurs when an embryo begins to split into identical twins but fails to complete the process
    Endured a 13 hour operation to remove the second head (February 19, 2005)
    Died a few days shy of her second birthday (March 26, 2006)
    The parasitic head that was removed was capable of smiling and blinking but not of independent life.
    The family chose to have the operation done in Benha rather than in Cairo or abroad at a center with more experience handling conjoined twins because they didn't want to travel too far from home.
    A seven-week-old girl from the Dominican Republic with a similar defect was operated on a year before but died on the operating table. Despite this knowledge the doctors still proceeded with the extremely risky operation.
    The hospital will not give further information about the girl's condition, on instructions from the Egyptian presidency and the girl's father.
    The surgery caused her to bleed extensively because of a major blood vessel that had to be severed from the head.
    Complications developed the day after the surgery, including unstable blood pressure, hypothermia, poor liver function and the blood not coagulating.
    Her skull had been reconstructed during surgery and her skin had been joined over the bone, thus eliminating the need for further reconstructive surgery.
    A separate twin sister, Noora, is healthy after initial problems when she was born.
    The operation was the first of its kind in the Middle East.
    She is a tough little girl.
