Man, if only he had one more arm. Then he could have an inspiring carreer as a Pokemon, or a controversial fighting game sub-boss.

Aw...I hope everything works out, seeing as all of the treatment he might need could be a bit dangerous...very cute baby, though. Hopefully the medical team will be successful with everything.

Usually, when babies are born with an extra something or another, they look sort of strange, but this baby looks almost completely normal.

Shame that he cries when touched in his two arms though.

^^ nah not really. they`ve made big leaps in scoliosis care and only one kidney isn`t much of a problem nowadays, you just get specialized therapy.
My mum was born without a kidney and an ovary on the same side, caused scoliosis. They didn`t know how to treat it back then so they fused her spine to stop it from bending further.

"I am no docter but with just one kidney he would have blood problems and with an extra limp he would need more blood. Die 5 years old with a extra limp and alot of pain, or take a limb..."

Fallen Soul im glad u said something bout his kidney. Everyones so bent up on his 3rd arm, Which would be really cool if both of em worked properly and if that was the case then i say let him keep them. But with the one kidney and the spine issue he`s gonna have more issues to worry about then weather or not they let him keep that thing or not. Also thought to myself strange how Evelution/mutation takes a leap like that myself as well, maybe we`ll have 4 arms in the far future one day. Lastly, anyone think this is a case of conjoined/parisitic twin that just didnt uh...fully form?

Dude, I`ve never seen a third arm that was so well developed before, and I look at a lot of websites about medical anomalies. I say keep all of them. The two are functional, just not fully functional, and having three hands would be sweet.

I think it`s cool. I heard on the radio this morning doctors are now saying both arms might work fine later on. Being ambidextris just took on a whole new meaning for that kid.

just imagine.... what you could do with another arm =)


and i dont think it`ll be such a hassle for clothes outside of school uniforms - tank tops and baggy shirts should work just fine

the problem will probly come when he has to get dress shirts.

why dont they just wait til he`s old enough to tell them which arm feels better? or at least give the lil dude a choice in whether he gets to keep 3 arms!

"It`s very Mortal Kombat."
LMAO

"No it won`t! I will cause problems for life. I`d consider amputation."

How exactly? if the amputate one, he`ll have one arm works normally, one arm that doesnt and a scar. Keeping it on would beless life threatening if anything.

he may get bullied, but he would be able topunch the bullies in the face, the gut and the nuts at the same time! plus, it would come in handy for more *ahem* recreational activities

He`ll probably be bullied in any case if the arm they keep (if they remove either) doesn`t work well at all. Surely 1 good and 2 not very functional arms is better than 1 good and 1 crappy one?

I would be pissed as hell if the surgeons removed my functioning third arm. I mean, how could would it be to have a third arm?

^^ shut up

Wouldn`t it make more sense if they kept the arm that`s attatched at the shoulder? But then again I`m no surgeon so what do I know? Sure, the kid would be bullied but it would be SO cool to have three amrs if he learnt to cope with them.

The only reason he`s gonna be known as a freak is because of ignorant and uneducated people like yourself.

^^Read the article before posting stupid things like that. It says they are planning to remove it as soon as they figure out which arm to remove and that niether arm is functional. Either way, cannot help but marvel at the way that evolution, or perhaps mutation takes huge jumps some times.
