A mindblowing medical discovery has left a family beyond stunned recently.
According to reports from local media outlets, a woman has been called out to be her daughter’s mother and her uncle at the same time.
A rare instance or rare finding called human chimeras proved that people with DNA from more than a single embryo can exist and while you may have thought it was really hard to see, well, today’s day and age show them in abundance.
So far, there are 20 confirmed cases in total and this next story is shedding light on that too.
The unraveling of a woman that has been confirmed to be her daughter’s mother and her daughter’s uncle was really leaving plenty of people baffled.
The condition called a medical anomaly is widely existent but researchers arising in the field of genetics claim they are yet to provide some sort of expectations that why it’s happening at all.
When users ask what is the frequency that such a condition does occur, well, the answer is they don’t even know. It is very new to some and funny to others.
But chimerism usually takes place when genes from one vanishing twin end up getting mixed with even those seen in a surviving sibling.
A paternity test was conducted on the woman while others say samples were taken from her blood, only to figure out that they came out to claim that she’s a male.
The woman named Yunis started to reignite conversations about human chimerism and how unique it was to learn that she has two gender-based identities. While some felt the tests were contaminated, others shut down those trolls and hoped they would get past their ignorance and accept change in society as well.
