A very rare congenital disorder in which the baby is born with only one eye.
Twins are joined together by one part of the body.
This is an extremely rare type of parasitic twinning occurring in about 4 to 6 of 10,000,000 births. Only ten cases of craniopagus parasiticus have been reported in the medical research literature.
This is an extremely rare connective tissue disease. It is caused by a mutation of the body’s repair mechanism, which causes fibrous tissue (including muscle, tendon, and ligament) to be ossified spontaneously or when damaged. In many cases, injuries can cause joints to become permanently frozen in place. Surgical removal of the extra bone growths has been shown to cause the body to “repair” the affected area with even more bone.
Infrequently, a child is born with a ’”soft tail”, which contains no vertebrae, but only blood vessels, muscles, and nerves.
Also called mermaid legs, the legs are joined in a place near the ankle.
The base of the fet is twisted inwards, and the child can’t put his/her feet on the ground properly.
