    Officials in southeastern Brazil say doctors performed a cesarean section on a 37-year-old woman only to discover that she wasn't pregnant.

    Simone Carvalho is a spokeswoman for the Health Department of the coastal city of Cabo Frio. She said Tuesday the woman told doctors at the city's Woman's Hospital she was 41 weeks pregnant and in pain.

    Carvalho said one reason doctors believed she was pregnant was because "she had the symptoms associated with pregnancy like an enlarged abdomen and nausea."

    Carvalho said "doctors could not hear the baby's heartbeat and feeling its life was in danger ordered an emergency cesarean after which they discovered it was a false pregnancy."

    The spokeswoman added the woman "was so convinced she was pregnant, that she altered her prenatal tests that showed otherwise because she was convinced the results were wrong."

    It is a big joke! This site should be of humor in medicine! It is obvious to anyone who understands the surgery! Look at the table: you see something like a Farabeuf? Those special tweezers?
    And for what lenses increase in cesarean section? Haha! There will be a Surg Light Plus? LOL Must be used in Egypt! LOL
