Meet the babies born with two heads, check out 10 of their pictures

Egyptian Girl Who Had Two Heads Dies. An Egyptian baby girl, who underwent surgery to remove a second head that shared a blood vessel with her brain, died of a severe infection, her surgeon said Monday. ... Doctors found that Maged was suffering from an infection in her brain, pneumonia and heart trouble, Hefnawi said.

Polycephaly is the condition of having more than one head. ... In humans, there are two forms of twinning that can lead to two heads being supported by a single torso. In dicephalus parapagus dipus, the two heads are side by side.

Manar Maged suffered from a rare condition that occurs when an embryo splits in the womb but does not develop fully into a twin. ... Doctors in Cairo operated on Manar in February 2005, when she was aged just 10 months. She died, aged two, after being rushed to hospital with a fever.

It's a rare condition that arises when a baby's skull doesn't close properly during pregnancy, and parts of the brain - or the membrane that covers it - form outside the skull in a 'second head'.
