7-year-old conjoined twins from Thailand two for one lower body
In seven year old twin sisters Pin and pan, living in Thailand, on a two-for-one head, two on the torso above the belt and four arms. Below the waist their bodies merge into one and each person can control only one «own» foot.
Similar type of binding of conjoined twins in the form of the letter «Y» was the Soviet sisters Masha and Dasha Krivoshlyapova (1950-2003), and the Russian twins Zita and Gita Rezahanova.
Since the Pin and pan control with your legs separated, it was difficult for them to learn to walk, much better than they do to move around on hands and ride on a little bike with three wheels. Grandma of twins says her granddaughter a happy girl, despite the anomaly.
Doctors offered to separate the twins surgically, but the girl was already in conscious age, and do not want to «break up» with each other. They say that between them a very strong connection.
The girls live in Nakhon Sawan, 250 km North of Bangkok, raising their grandparents. About the girls ‘ parents said nothing.
— They love to sing, eat ice cream, help each other out and laugh together at the jokes, — said the grandmother of twins.
Girls attend a special school for children from dysfunctional families, where they are very popular and they have many friends and teachers praising them. And teachers and grandparents hope that the twins will get in school all the skills required in adult life to be completely independent and provide for themselves and perhaps even to find a job.
— When I saw them for the first time, I had a shock — says the grandmother, ‘ I never thought that my grandkids Siamese twins.
From the hospital she came back in tears, but then she felt sorry for the girls (parents probably decided to leave them), and now she is proud of her grandchildren even when they are sometimes naughty.
Despite the fact that the Pin and pan are very similar, they are different personalities. One loves short hairstyles, and other longer hair. One likes noodles, and other noodles dislikes.
The doctors have repeatedly suggested the grandmother to share her grandson, but grandma says she thought this was not. The sisters also refused surgery.
