A Indian boy born with three penises has undergone a life-changing operation to correct the incredibly rare condition.
The two-year-old kid, who remains unidentified, has suffered from diphallia, is a rare abnormality in which a male infant is born with two penises. Moreover, the child had a third undeveloped penis and was born without an anus.
As a solution, doctors made an incision in his stomach to let his feces pass out through a tube. And only two years later an anus was created through the boy's rectum so he could defecate normally.
Besides, last month the boy eventually underwent a six-hour operation to remove the unnecessary appendages. Giving the details of the operation, Dr Vishesh Dixit, paediatric surgeon, said:
Doctors said the boy will be able to have normal sexual life and his fertility will not be affected when he grows up.
Diphallia is incredibly rare, affecting only one in every five to six million births. Only a hundred or so cases have been recorded in the medical literature since 1609.
