'Evil Twin' Ovarian Tumor Found In Skeleton From 16th Century Peru - Forbes

In an historic cemetery of the Chapel of the Divino Niño Serranito de Eten on the north coast of Peru, bioarchaeologists have discovered nearly 500 burials dating to the Colonial Period.  One skeleton in particular, that of a teenage girl, stood out because of the dozens of extra bones and teeth found in her abdominal cavity. Her diagnosis of ovarian teratoma puts her as only the third known example of the phenomenon in ancient history.
