23 A Fur Tree in the Lungs

A Fur Tree in the Lungs

The X-ray photograph.

Yesterday Russian media reported a weird medical story about the man from Russian city Izhevsk. The man had severe pains in his chest and went to the doctor for a consultation. After the X-rays were made the doctors were sure the patient has a tumor in his lungs and decided to perform surgery. “When I opened the tumour I found something very strange – so strange that I couldn’t believe my eyes”, was telling the surgeon to journalists, “there was a real fur-tree, but very little it was, just a few cm (about one inch) tall growing through his lungs. I blinked three times and then called my assistant to take a look, and then he confirmed this”.

The tree was removed later and was sent to a lab for tests on how it could get growing there.

The photo of the object together with the surrounding body part is down there, thow it’s not too pleasant to look at.

The patient.

The object itself.
