'Octomom' doc accused of implanting 7 embryos

California officials say the fertility doctor for "Octomom" Nadya Suleman implanted too many embryos in another patient, resulting in the death of a fetus.

The Medical Board of California has been investigating Dr. Michael Kamrava of Beverly Hills since Suleman gave birth to octuplets 18 months ago.

The board, which has authority to revoke his license, found Kamrava implanted more than the medically recommended two embryos in a patient over age 35.

That 48-year-old woman, identified only as "L.C.," had seven embryos implanted, and four became viable. She lost one during pregnancy and gave birth to triplets, one of whom has profound developmental delays.

A call seeking comment from Kamrava was not immediately returned.
