18kg tumor

GERMAN doctors say they have successfully removed an 18 kilogram malignant bone tumor from a Saudi Arabian woman. Berlin surgeon Heinz Zurbruegg said yesterday that the 35-year-old had only a few weeks to live when she arrived in Germany for care in September. He says that after five operations, no traces remain of the bone tumor that once ballooned from her pelvis and made up about a third of her total body weight of 37kg. Surgeons say she is well enough to return home.
