But both the doctors and parents were shocked to find out that she had no tumor, but was instead, pregnant for seven months!
Lina then became the world’s youngest mother in history.
Born at 6 pounds, normal for most babies, she gave him the name “Gerardo” after her doctor.
During the operation performed by Dr. Lozada and Dr. Busalleu, with Dr. Colareta, it was only then they found out that she already had fully developed mammary glands and sexual organs, due to a rare condition called “precocious puberty.”
The young mother’s father was arrested for suspected rape and abuse, but was released since there was no evidence.
But it was never revealed who the father of the baby was.
Her case that rocked the medical world was reported in details by Dr. Edmundo Escomel in the medical journal La Presse Médicale, including the additional details that she had her first menstruation at the age of eight months, much earlier than what Lina’s parents told the doctors. The report also detailed that at the age of four, she already had prominent breast development. By five, her figure displayed pelvic widening and advanced bone maturation.
