Doctors in Charleston, South Carolina, have been left baffled after a baby girl was born with two mouths, an extra lip and a set of six teeth and a small tongue that reportedly moved at the same time as the tongue in her main mouth.

This is due to a rare condition that has been seen in only 35 people since 1900.

A case report published on May 19 was written by doctors at the Medical University of South Carolina and includes prenatal imagery showing a mass on the right of the baby girl’s face.

Sky News reports the abnormality was first picked up on a scan during the mother’s third trimester, with initial diagnoses including a cyst, bone disorder or teratoma.
