In what is being described as one of the most bizarre cases in medical history, pediatric brain surgeon Dr. Paul Grabb has removed a small foot that he found growing inside the brain of 3-day-old baby Sam Esquibel.
During the surgery, which was performed at Memorial Hospital for Children in Colorado Springs, the doctor also found parts of an intestine, and another developing foot, hand and thigh in the folds of the baby’s small brain, according to KMGH Denver.
