Youngest Mother In The Medical History:
Lina Medina (born September 27, 1933 in Paurange in Peru) gave birth when she was at the age of 5 years, 7 months and 21 days. She is considered to be the youngest mother in medical history ever.
She was brought to the hospital by her parents because of her continuous increasing abdominal size. They initially thought she had a tumor or abdominal cancer, but after the checkup in the hospital it was quickly clear that she was pregnant. Few days later, at May 14 1939, her son was born by a caesarean section necessitated by her small pelvis.
The complex surgery was executed by Dr. Lozada and Dr. Busalleu, with Dr. Colretta as a anaesthetist. Before the operation, Dr. Lozada had brought her to the hospital in Lima to check whether Lina whether she was really pregnant or not. The case of Lina is officially registered by Dr. Edmundo Escomel in La Presse Medicale.
After she delivered, Her son weighed 2.7 kg (6 lb) at birth and he was named as Gerardo. Gerardo was raised believing that Lina was his sister, but found out at the age of ten that she was his mother. He grew up healthy but died in 1979 at the age of 40 of a disease of the bone marrow.
Lina her menarche had occurred at 8 months of age, and she had had prominent breast development by the age of 4. By age 5 her figure displayed pelvic widening and advanced bone maturation.
The pregnancy was the youngest pregnancy in the world.
She never revealed her father of the child. Lina’s father was arrested on suspicion of rape and incest, but was later released due to lack of evidence. Medina later married Raúl Jurado, who fathered her second son in 1972.
Although this weird or strange medical case was called a hoax by some, a number of doctors over the years have tried to investigate it based on biopsies, X rays of the fetal skeleton in utero, and photographs taken by the doctors. Extreme degrees of precocious puberty in children under 5 are very uncommon but not unheard of.
