Cao Viet Dung, deputy head of Khanh Hoa General Hospital, said the baby’s large and small intestines, gall bladder and oviduct were exposed through an opening which was about 4 centimeters long.

After the one-hour operation, the doctors managed to place all of the internal organs back inside her abdomen.

Doctor Dung said one in every 2,000 to 5,000 babies are born with this defect and it is more commonly found in girls than boys.

The baby’s recovery is being closely monitored.
