Baby boy with fatal tumour is saved by miracle surgery in the womb

20 October 2014

Baby Ethan has now fully recovered from his treatment

A South African couple discovered that a benign tumour had grown on their unborn baby boy’s left lung, taking up 50% of the his lung space and causing fluid on the lungs, resulting in cardiac failure.

However, the parents were offered a life-saving treatment for their baby, Ethan, which entailed surgery whilst he was still in the womb. The surgery was successful and was followed up with another operation after birth.

Ethan has now fully recovered from his treatment. [, 16 October]
