In a rare incident, a woman in Karnataka has given birth to a baby boy who had nine toes on one of his feet.
The woman is a resident of Hosapet taluk and the male child was born in a private hospital on 28 May. The mother and the baby were stable after the delivery.
The doctors were unaware of the condition and it was a surprise after the delivery. According to doctor “We do not know in advance how many fingers the child will have. It is known only after birth how many fingers the child has.”
According to child expert the child has extra toes on left foot will not have any health problems. Many babies are born with extra toes, but this is a rare thing in this case where one toe of the child has nine toes. As they get older, the baby has extra toes to be able to walk with the fingers.
Many elders of the family called it the gift of God and thanked the team of doctors for the well-being of the child and the mother.
