Woman Delivers Identical Quadruplets

A 26-year-old woman has delivered identical quadruplets, a rarity claimed to be occurring once in forty lakh cases globally, at a corporate hospital here. //

Shruthi Vivekanandan, a software professional based here, delivered the girl babies- Aditi, Aakriti, Akshathi, Aapthi, at the Apollo Hospitals on April 25 last, ten weeks prior to her full term, without any medical complications, doctors said.

The babies weighed 825 to 980 gms at birth, they said.

Talking to reporters here, Dr Meena Thiagarajan, an expert in Neonatal care, said cases like Shruthi's, which were called 'naturally conceived monochrorionic quadriamniotic quadruplets', occurred once in 6-7 lakh births.

However, she went on to explain that Shruthi's case was one step further- she had identical or monozygous quadruplets, wherein all four umbilical chords shared the same placental vessels and the babies were uni-sexual and had the same blood group.

'In this medical condition, the mother carries the risk of foetal loss of all four babies at the same time, due to various factors including chord complications and pre-term labour,' Dr Siyamala, Director-Medical Services, said.

On the other hand, the babies themselves ran the risk of being affected with diabetes, anaemia, blood pressure, Respiratory Distress syndrome, infection and jaundice.

However, in spite of being born in 29 weeks and three days, the babies were healthy now and were gaining weight rapidly, Dr Siyamala added.
