Siamese twins Ervina and Privina, united in head and separated, are 4 years old – Medicine

Lively, with a sweet smile and a sly expression. Central African Siamese twins Irvina and Privina, born on June 29, 2018, are doing well and are skipping the four-year stage. It is attached to the skull (from the back of the neck). They arrived in Italy at Bambino Gesu Children’s Hospital in September 2018.
After much study and preparation, they were separated on June 5, 2020 and their case was the first in the literature of successful surgery for this type of joint. They would still need a “cranioplastic surgery” to complete the surgical course, and thus stay in the hospital, but in the meantime, the girls’ fourth birthday, two years after their separation, was celebrated by everyone at Casa Ronald di Palidoro. The family is reunited, including father Jospin and older sister Achilles. The father and older sister of the twins, who were in Italy with their mother, Hermine, arrived at Christmas 2021 through the hospital supporting the father in his job search.
