Akmal is a 14-year-old boy from Gowa, Indonesia, and he claimed that he has been laying eggs. He was hospitalized many times due to his condition but doctors were not able to determine what is wrong with him.
Medical experts who checked the boy were always left scratching their heads as they cannot find any answers as to why he lays eggs at certain times. What’s more baffling is the fact that what he has been laying all this time were chicken eggs!
Akmal’s father said that when the eggs laid by his son are cracked open, they appear to be either all white or all yolk. Over the course of two years since 2016, the boy allegedly laid 20 eggs in total.
“In two years he laid 18 eggs and two today, so in total there have been 20. I cracked the first egg and its content was all yellow, no white,” Daily Mail quoted Akmal’s father as saying.
Out of these 20, Akmal recently laid two of them in front of doctors. However, even if they had personally witnessed how the teenager produced the egg, they still have doubts about this bizarre case.

At any rate, the doctors explained that it is not possible for eggs to develop inside the human body so they think there are other reasons why Akmal is laying eggs. But in order to come up with clear answers, they are not discounting the possibility that there is a medical or scientific explanation for Akmal’s condition.
This was why during the boy’s latest visit to the health facility, the doctors conducted an x-ray procedure on the teenager’s abdomen. To their surprise, the results showed that there was indeed an object, shaped like a chicken egg, in Akmal’s rectum.
Despite the x-ray, medical experts believed that this is not a medical condition but rather just a result of the boy’s pretense. They think that the 14-year-old lad has an egg in his stomach that he could lay afterward because he might have either swallowed it whole or pushed it up into his rectum.
“Our suspicion is that the eggs were deliberately shoved into Akmal’s rectum. But we did not see it directly,” the Syekh Yusuf Hospital’s spokesperson’s said in an interview.
After hearing the doctors’ conclusion, Akmal’s father firmly denied the allegation and insisted that their family did not do anything to make his son lay the chicken eggs.
The doctors have quarantined the teenager to observe him more and erase the doubt that the laying of eggs has been done deliberately, perhaps, to gain attention. Meanwhile, as per the Daily Star, the research done by the experts last year confirmed that the object supposedly being laid by Akmal were really chicken eggs.
