A baby with six legs was born in a hospital in Pakistan. The baby is now under observation by doctors where it was born. They are now planning to go for an operation to remove the extra limbs as believed to be the arms and legs of a failed development of conjoined twins.
The case of the baby is very rare and happened to once in one million birth cases. The doctors planned to appeal to the international medical community for assistance with the regards to the condition of the baby. The father of the Imran Shaikf also appealed for financial help to sustain the treatment of their baby. The father merely earned $66 monthly and not enough to expend for the treatments needed. He added, “I appeal to philanthropists and the government to come forward for the treatment.”
The director of the National Institute of Child Health in Karachi Jamal Raza said,” We need to figure out whether the baby has his twin’s limbs or his own. We also need to consider how much the internal organs have developed as the latter could complicate matters and decrease the baby’s chances of surviving.”
