Fetus in fetu is a rare congenital abnormality associated with abnormal embryogenesis in a diamniotic, monochorionic pregnancy. It is an unusual condition in which a vertebrate fetus is enclosed within the abdomen of a normally developing fetus. We report such a case who was identified by plain abdominal radiograph, ultrasonography, and CT findings.
