A baby boy was born with three 4-5s in Iraq. According to Live-Science magazine, the baby was born with three 4-5s in the first-ever reported case of human triphallia, the condition in which three phalluses form during embryonic development.
According to the publication, the child, first seen by doctors as a three-month-old baby, underwent surgery to remove two of the phalluses, which were small projections at the base of the 4-5 and scrotum.
The third phallus was in the usual location.
According to a case study in the International Journal of Surgery Case Reports published in November, the boy was doing well at a follow-up visit a year after surgery.
According to world health experts, extra pen1ses are a rare congenital condition, occurring only once in every five million to six million live births.
The level of development of these extra phalluses differs in individuals.
In the case of the child in Iraq, the two additional pen1ses contained the erectile tissue, called corpus cavernosum, which becomes engorged with blood during arousal, as well as a tissue called corpus spongiosum, which helps support the urethra, the tube through which urine passes.
