PHOTOS: Indian Boy Born With Two Heads.

A pair of conjoined twins have been born in India with two heads but just one body.

The boys’ heads, nervous systems and backbones are separate. The backbones are joined below the pelvis and they share a rib cage and shoulder girdle.

Doctors say they believe they can save the lives of the boys who were born in Jaipur, Rajasthan, on Wednesday.

Doctors in Jaipur, the capital and largest city of the Indian state of Rajasthan, say they are battling to save the twins.

Dr. S.D. Sharma, medical superintendent of J.K. Lone Hospital, said that such cases are very rare, especially in boys and are known as Dicephalic Parapagus. He added that this is the first case in Rajasthan and second in India.

Most of the time, children that are Dicephalic Parapagus are born dead and, in the vast majority of cases, are girls. But doctors are hoping they can help the boy.
