Fetus "kills" after his mother is infected with strange illness



A woman died of a strange neurological disease and her son was infected when he was ten years pregnant while he was pregnant.

Fetus transmitted his mother to the rare disease of Creutzfeldt-Jakob.

Now adults are born with a strange genetic mutation that causes brain damage and at the same time reduces mental functions and movements.

The man inherited his father's pathology, died many years ago. However, the woman who died at the age of 70 was surprised by the fact that there were no changes in the genes, but she died in the same way.

The specialists concluded that the mother was infected with the illness because of her son's pregnancy, the cells of the fetus went to the placenta and went to the body to reach her brain.

In this case, Ausrine Arekeviciute, a doctor and researcher from the Copenahag University Clinic, explained that pregnant women are pregnant when the fetus cells travel through placenta and reach different mother organs.

Today, the son is still alive despite the fact that the disease is damaged.

In fact, the son's medical diagnosis was suspected by doctors, his mother had no genetic mutations infected with his son.

"There is no treatment and the prognosis is not good," said Dr. Ausrine Arekeviciute. "It's a sad story," he said. This case was published in the Journal of Neuropathology and Experimental Neurology.

Creutzfeldt-Jakob is a disease that is inherently inheritable or can be transmitted to infected tissue, such as transplantation or contaminated flesh.
