A file picture, not the baby in the article

In 2015, a boy born in Jaunpur, Uttar Pradesh was born with three penises. Now one in Iran is born with three too. 

The condition of this three-month-old baby, called Triphallia, is new in the sense that there are occurrences of boy having born with two penises. But with three penises are rare. 

However, doctors say that only one could be a “true penis”. Like in Jaunpur baby’s case, two had erectile issues. So is the case with Iraqi boy and since they were supernumerary and didn’t possess urethrae, the extra two were removed by doctors surgically without any adverse effect. 

The Kurd baby from Duhok was brought to hospital due to swelling in scrotum. However, the doctors noticed that there were two extra penises. One 2-centimeter (0.8-inch) penis sprouting near the root of his primary penis, and another one-centimeter-long schlong situated under his sack.

The Jaunpur baby’s case had something more. His anus was missing. So doctors created an incision on left left side of his stomach to let the excreta pass. Once the anal path had healed, the stomach incision was sewn up. Though this was arguably the first case, it wasn’t documented in a medical journal.
