Needle inserted within woman's brain for 47 years!

X-Ray of the headImagine having a needle inserted into your forehead since you were a baby and having it there for 47 years! That's the frightening real life story of a Chinese woman that suddenly collapsed with acute epilepsy. After she was sent to the hospital, a CT scan was performed and upon careful analysis, doctors discovered that she has some foreign matter within her head! To make matters worse, due to the long time the needle was buried within the patient's brain, the needle was seriously rusted. Around the foreign matter, extravasated blood had formed a small cyst and thus was seriously affecting the side of the normal brain organization. Doctors quickly decided to operate the skull for her to take out the metal immediately, and asserted that the needle was inserted by someone since birth.
