Incidents of children born with different genetic conditions are reported from all parts of the world. But in some cases the sensitivity and concern for them gets sidelined by superstition coming from lack of awareness.

People in Gorakhpur are flocking to catch a glimpse of a child born with four legs and two penises. The baby born to a labourer Bulhan Nishad is being described as a ‘miracle of god’ by locals.

Meanwhile the cause of his condition may be a parasitic twin which may not have fully developed but remains attached to the child. The boy will have to undergo surgery at a hospital in Lucknow to treat the deformity.
