The twins who were admitted to the hospital’s Neonatal Specialized Ward were born on 4 September and found to be stable after examination.
“Physical examination shows that the twins are joined at the sacral region of the spinal cord. One of the twins has a fracture on her right lower limb ostensibly caused during delivery,” KNH said in a statement.
“Medical investigations have commenced to determine what the twins share in order to inform the clinical management of the babies,” the statement added.
The first born female babies were accompanied to KNH by Caroline Mukiri a 26-year-old single mother who was optimistic to see her babies separated.
