Sukkur Hospital in Pakistan welcomed a precious baby boy on April 13th who unfortunately has a congenital defect that has caused him to have six legs. Mr. Imran Sheikh, the father of the newborn, was understandably shocked to learn of his son’s condition. Thankfully, the medical team at the hospital has assured him that removing the extra limbs through surgery will not be a difficult procedure.
A male infant with an extraordinary condition of having six legs was recently delivered in Pakistan. Fortunately, the physicians confirmed that the baby is in stable condition despite his congenital anomaly. The medical professionals have taken appropriate actions to safeguard the newborn from any potential diseases or illnesses.
At present, the main issue revolves around Mr. Imran Sheikh’s family being unable to bear the cost of the required amputation surgery for their newborn’s extra leg. Mr. Imran mentioned that his monthly earnings are just around 67 USD, and that makes it extremely difficult for them to finance their child’s treatment.
Dr. Muhammad Qaisar, an expert from the Institute of Medical Engineering in Islamabad, has confirmed that Pakistan is now reporting a unique case of a newborn baby with six legs. The father of the baby, Imran Sheikh, has brought him home but is seeking help from donors and non-governmental organizations.
Despite the baby being born with a congenital abnormality, their physical condition is satisfactory.
