Born the other half of parasitic twins, the four day old baby is likely to have gotten his extra limbs from his other twin who was born prematurely and incompletely developed.
(The Buzz) A baby boy, now only four days old, was born with extra limbs on his lower abdomen at a government hospital in Sukkur, India.
After being taken to the National Institute of Child Health on Monday, senior doctors are describing him as a rare and complicated case.
"One of the twins is living, while the other has become parasitic. The infant is all right and has been admitted to the intensive care unit of the NICH, but the removal of the parasitic limbs could be a serious and time-consuming medical exercise including both inner and cosmetic surgeries,” said NICH director Prof Jamal Raza.
