A newborn baby born in the Iraqi nation has etched his name in medicine’s hall of fame after being born with three penises.
According to the country’s state media, the baby made great history after being documented as having a whopping number of three penises, which was never heard or seen in medical history. Now, reports suggest his name is currently entering a new medical journal study as we speak.
The jaw-dropping news of possessing a trio of penises sent shockwaves around the globe, leaving many in absolute intrigue and fascination over the unique finding.
Regarding the study, Dr.Shakir Saleem Jabail mentioned how this case is the first of its kind to be reported. “To the best of our knowledge, this is the first reported case with a total of three penises, also known as triphallia,” he mentioned in the study which was published in the renowned ‘International Journal of Surgery Case Reports.
Local media outlets mentioned how the little baby boy was a Kurd who hailed from the district of Duhok. Moreover, he was first brought inside the hospital by his mom and dad, when he was just 3 months old. His parents reported visited the doctor over complaints relating to how the child suffered from swelling in the scrotum area.
Upon arrival, doctors immediately recognized the ‘extra findings,’ which comprised of one 2-centimeter long member that sprouted near the root area of his main penis. Next, there was another one, about 1 centimeter long that was situated, right under his sack.
The anomaly was very mysterious as the baby was not exposed to any drugs while sitting in his mother’s womb. In the same way, he did not have any family history that related to any genetic aberrations either, reported the study.
As per the case report, doctors opted to surgically nip the additional penises as they didn’t have any urethras, which is the tube through which urine passes.
Thankfully, one month later, the baby appeared to be problem-free and doing well, mentioned the report.
