Doctors find Uterus in Indian Man; Man has Emergency Hysterectomy

An Indian man, only identified as "Ryalu," went to the hospital after intense stomach pains. The hospital in Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh thought it may be a hernia or a list of common stomach illnesses. They did not expect what they found: a "full female reproductive system," including a uterus.

Precisely, the man had "a female uterus, ovaries, Fallopian tubes, a cervix and underdeveloped vaginal tissue" all in his lower abdomen. Surgeon Pramod Kumar Shrivastava stated that the man "had external male organs, was fit from working in the fields, and lived a normal life."

After the discovery, Ryalu had an emergency hysterectomy. He is currently recovering in a hospital.

The Telegraph continues:
"Usually the contents of the Hernia Sac are abdomen organs like large intestines and small intestines but when we operated on the patient we were surprised to find female reproductive organs. We have removed the organs through a hysterectomy and repaired the hernia.

"The sac contained quite developed uterus, both the ovaries, Fallopian tubes, cervix and a tissue which is undeveloped but apparently looks like vaginal tissue," he explained.
