They have separate body parts except the abdomen and anus
Twins were born joined at the stomach in Rajshahi. Hands, feet and head are separate but not the stomach and anus. One of the two children is a boy and the other is a girl.
The two children were born at Rajshahi Medical College Hospital (RMCH) through caesarean section around 5am on Monday.
The mother of the two children is Anguri Begum, 35. She is the wife of Rubel Hossain, who is a baker in Bidirpur village in Chapainawabganj sadar upazila.
Anguri Begum and her two children were discharged from the hospital at around 2pm. They have returned home to their village. The family is worried about the physical state of the two children.
Earlier, they were kept in ward 23 of Gynaecology Unit-2 of the hospital at around 1pm while Anguri Begum was sleeping on bed number 22 of the ward.
Their grandmother Anwara Begum was sitting with the two children on her lap and wept.
Many of their relatives came to visit them. People were crowding to see the two children.
According to the relatives, Anguri Begum was taken to a clinic in Chapainawabganj on Sunday evening when she went into labour.
Then the doctor informed the family after ultrasonogram that they could not do anything. They sent her to RMCH. She was admitted to RMCH at 2am. The two babies were born by caesarean section in the morning.
Anwara Begum said that the two children have two arms and two legs. The head and face are also different, but the abdomen is the same, anus is not distinct.
The gender of the two children is also not clearly understood. However, the doctor informed them that one of the children was a boy and the other was a girl.
Anwara also said her daughter had two sons, one 18 years old and the other 15 years old.
The family members are now worried about the treatment of the two children. They will go home from the hospital to raise some money and then go to Dhaka for treatment.
Nargis Shamima Swapna, the doctor in charge of Gynnaecology unit 2 of the hospital, declined to comment.
However, the deputy director of RMCH, Dr Saiful Ferdous, said that the twins were born with the same abdomen and no anus. Surgery is needed for the anus. That is why the family had been advised to take the two children to Dhaka.
