A 5-year-old Peruvian girl has become the
world’s youngest mother in medical history after
giving birth to a baby boy.
Lina Medina gave birth to the baby on May 14,
1939 — a completely healthy, 2.7kg baby boy.
Born in Ticrapo, Castrovirreyna Province, Peru, to
silversmith Tiburelo Medina and Victoria Losea,
she was brought to a hospital by her parents at
the age of five years due to increasing abdominal
She was originally thought to have a tumor, but
doctors determined she was in her seventh month
of pregnancy. Dr Gerardo Lozada took Medina to
Lima to have other specialists confirm that she
was pregnant.
Medina had to give birth via Caesarean because
her pelvis was too small for a natural birth.
Doctors discovered that Medina’s sexual organs
were completely mature, and diagnosed her with a
condition called precocious puberty.

So who would impregnate a five-year-old? Police
arrested Medina’s father because they believed he
committed incest, but released him after they
couldn’t find evidence.
To this day, Medina—who is still alive at 85—has
never revealed the true identity of Gerardo’s
father, or even talked about giving birth at age
Although Lina’s father was arrested on suspicion
of child sexual abuse, he was later released due
to lack of evidence, and the biological father was
never identified.

The boy grew up healthy, thinking Medina was his
sister rather than his mother, but learned the
truth when he was 10 years old. He died in 1979
at age 40 from a bone disease.
