An Indian boy born with four legs and two penises is set to return home after a successful surgery. Doctors at Bangalore's Narayana Health City described the complexities of the case to local reporters at a news conference Thursday. The boy, who has not yet been named, was born with polymelia -- a rare congenital birth defect that results in extra limbs or organs, which are usually deformed.
"These are problems that happen from time to time and (are) irrespective of socio-economic status," said Dr. Sanjay Rao, a senior consultant pediatric surgeon at Narayana Health City who performed the procedure. Rao told the boy's parents gave him permission to discuss the case publicly.
