Aug. 9, 2012
A woman in India and her surgeons discovered a surprise when two teeth were found embedded in a tumor of her eye.

A 23-year-old woman in India, Nagabhushanam Siva, was surprised, along with her doctors, to find out that two fully formed teeth were embedded in the tissue of a tumor she had in her eye since birth.

The tumor continued to swell throughout the years. When her vision became blurred, she contacted a doctor. Because the tumor was left untreated for so long, it damaged the optic nerve causing Nagabhushanam to be permanently blind in that eye. The surgeons found the teeth when they removed the tumorous growth.
