She has to bear the arm from her parasitic twin dangling from her stomach.

Veronica Cominguez, 14, who lives in Iligan City in the Philippines, was born with two limbs and an oblong-shaped growth on her chest and stomach.

The extra parts – belonging to a parasitic twin who did not develop properly – have grown with her. She even cleans her ‘twin’ and cuts its fingernails.

But Veronica is now set to live a normal life after locals raised money for her to fly to neighbouring Thailand for an operation.

‘When I was little, I thought it was just a foot. But as I grew up, it became bigger,’ Veronica said.

She said the parts are heavy, limit her movement and sometimes leak. ‘It keeps swinging. My dress often gets wet,’ she added.

Flora said Veronica’s navel always gets wet because of the liquid that comes out of it and sometimes, the discharge has blood on it.

Veronica’s mother Flora Cominguez said their family has a history of twins. Although she was not able to properly see a doctor during her pregnancy, she knew she was expecting twins and had even picked out name for both. But unfortunately, Veronica’s sibling did not fully develop and she has been forced to grow up with a parasitic twin.

Flora said Veronica’s navel always gets wet because of the liquid that comes out of it and sometimes, the discharge has blood on it.

‘The liquid that comes out of the opening smells bad, like human excretion,’ she said.

But according to Veronica’s doctor, the extra limbs can be removed through a simple operation. Dr. Beda Espineda, a pediatric surgeon at the Philippine Children’s Medical Center, said: ‘Most of these cases can be removed because, usually, the body structures involved are not vital.

Now, Veronica is now waiting to have the surgery.

‘Most of them are just attached to the skin or bones. For surgeons, it is easy to remove.’
