- Wien. med. Wschr., 19/20-22, 31-32. - Wien, L.W.Seidel, 10., 13. und 17. März und 17. und 21. April 1869, 4°, Sp.318-380; 517-564, feine Broschur. Erstdruck "nach Prof. Simpson's in Edinburgh Mittheilungen" von Carl Bernhard Brühl. "It is not clear the extent to which the 1868-69 trip to the British Isles-they did not make it to Paris-was an opportunity to scout out medical opinions or the chance to tap a market they had not visited in more than thirty years. In their first days in Britain, a host of esteemed physicians in Edinburgh ran them through a battery of tests. This was likely a matter of course. After several decades, a new generation of doctors wanted to have a look at the famous "united twins or double monsters," as University of Edinburgh, professor Sir James Y. Simpson called them. The twins themselves had no desire whatsoever to be separated, Simpson wrote, and upon their return to the States in 1869, they denied having gone to Europe to be divided, calling the story an invention of Barnuni.40 But some family members did want the Separation to occur if possible, Simpson wrote, because the families had been living some distance apart and, as the twins became older, the families' fears grew about what would happen to one when the other died."

Mai 1811 im Tambon Mae Klong, Provinz Samut Songkhram in Siam, heute Thailand - 17. Januar 1874) waren siamesische Zwillinge, die dieser Fehlbildung ihren Namen gaben. Carl Brühl (Carl-Bernhard Brühl) (5. Mai 1820 in Prag; 14. August 1899 in Graz) war ein österreichischer Mediziner und Zoologe (Anatom; Hochschullehrer), Volksbildner und Frauenrechtler.
