A 23-year-old mother had a normal delivery on Jan 21 in India, giving birth to a baby boy who had four legs and two penises.

According to the doctors who attended to the mother, the baby had a parasitic twin, putting his life in danger. Since the parasitic twin did not have its own heart and circulation, it leeched its blood supply from the surviving twin. He needed surgery as soon as possible.


The family had to travel 460km from their hometown of Karnataka to Bangalore for treatment. And so at just 2 weeks old, the baby underwent the crucial surgery to save his life.

“It is God’s gift to us,” the woman said as she initially intended to raise the child as he was.

But after counselling and learning that NHC had offered to treat the baby for free, she agreed to let her son proceed with the surgery.

The baby’s condition has improved greatly following the surgery, and doctors are set to discharge him by next week.

What is a ‘parasitic twin’?

The undeveloped twin is defined as parasitic, rather than conjoined, because it is incompletely formed or wholly dependent on the body functions of the complete fetus. The independent twin is called the autosite.
