Baby girl born with fully-grown tail: A surprising case has come to light from Mexico. Here a baby girl was born with a long tail. The length of this tail was about 6 cm. Even the doctors were surprised to see this. Later it was separated from the body after surgery. According to doctors, this happens to only one out of 10 lakh people. The baby girl was born by caesarean section in a rural hospital in the north-east of the country.

According to the Journal of Pediatric Surgery, the child had no previous history of radiation exposure or infection during pregnancy. The parents of the child were also completely healthy. The tail measured 5.7 cm in length, was also cylindrical, with a diameter between 3 mm and 5 mm throughout its length.

hair on the tail
According to the British newspaper Daily Star, doctors said that the tail was covered with hair and skin and the baby started crying when it was pinched. Then the doctors did a lumbosacral X-ray. This is an imaging test that helps the doctor visualize the anatomy of the lower back. But no evidence of anomalies or bone structures was found inside the tail. This means that this tail was not working. Which has lost any use in the body over time.

discharged after surgery
The child’s MRI scan also revealed no brain anomalies, and was negative for spinal abnormalities. Later, at the age of two months, the baby was re-examined by the pediatric and general surgery team. When the doctors were satisfied that there had been sufficient weight and growth for the age, the tail structure was increased by 0.8 cm in length. With no evidence of skin lesions, it was decided to amputate the tail and reconstruct the area by Limburg plasty.
The child was then discharged and no complications have been reported since then.
