Close to 300 cases of lithopedions have ever been documented by medical literature.

While lithopedion was first described in the 10th century by Albucasis, the first famous case of a stone baby was from a 68 year old woman named Colombe Chatri from France in 1582.

For about 28 years of Chatri’s life, she complained of abdominal pain and also felt a very large, hard substance in her abdomen.

When Chatri died, physicians performed an autopsy through which they discovered the stone baby. 

According to reports, this particular calcified fetus was sold, including drawings of it.

The fetus was passed around over the years before finally ending up in the Danish Museum of Natural History. It later got missing.
