When the girl coughs, her heart can be seen pumping. Her heart is shielded only be a thin layer of skin.
The condition known as thoraco-abdominal syndrome or Pantalogy of Cantrell, happens in less than one million births.
The girl and her family have moved from Russia to America in hope to receive treatment, according to reports.
In 2013, INSIDE EDITION reported on baby Audrey who was born with her heart beating outside her chest.
Doctor's didn't expect her to survive and she underwent surgery to implant the heart back into her body. The girl, now two, survived the odds.
The hope is that little Virsaviya will get the surgery she needs and will survive this rare condition.
