    Lina Medina, a five year-old Peruvian girl, became the youngest confirmed mother in medical history, when she gave birth to her son. Medina has never revealed the father of the child nor the circumstances of her impregnation. Her son grew up healthy and died in 1979 at the age of 40. Although the case was speculated as a hoax, a number of doctors over the years have verified it based on biopsies, X rays of the fetal skeleton in utero, and photographs taken by the doctors caring for her.
