In Iraq, a baby has been born with three penises. The doctor said it was the first time he had seen such a case where a baby has more than one private part. Usually the number of fingers or toes increases or decreases. However, this is the first time I have seen such a case in the private sector, doctors claim.
According to Daily Mail, the baby was born in Mosul, in northern Iraq. According to doctors, three penises is unreported condition in human until now.
Doctors discovered the were penises, 2cm and 1cm in length. These are aligned with the main genitalia. Doctors diagnosed supernumerary penises - an extremely rare condition first seen in 1609, in which a baby is born with more than one penis. This means that the baby will not be able to participate in any physical activity.
According to Ashat doctors, two of his genitals will be removed by surgery. This may be due to a problem that occurred during pregnancy. Or there may be a genetic reason for it.
The birth of this baby with three genitals is rare. But this is not the first case. This is called supernumerary.One such case is seen in the birth of 50 to 60 lakh babies worldwide.
Some 100 cases of babies born with two penises have been reported in medical literature, and in some cases both penises work. However, this is the first time anyone has been born with three genitals. The team in Iraq led by Dr Shakir Saleem Jabali said,"this is a rare condition called triphallia, which has never been reported before."
An international case study has also been published in this regard. Which is published in the International Journal of Surgery. A similar case was reported in India in 2015 claiming they had treated a two-year-old boy born with three penises and no anus, but it appears the story was never written up in a medical journal.
