Doctors to operate on six-legged baby

Doctors were Wednesday discussing how to operate on a baby born with six legs, a rare deformity believed to have been caused by a genetic disorder.

The boy was born last week in Pakistan's southern Sindh province and was sent to the National Institute of Child Health (NICH) in Karachi.

"It is too early to speculate how such a complicated and technical operation should be carried out," said NICH director Jamal Raza, noting that some of the limbs might be "internally jointed." Raza said the parents would not have to pay for the operation after a government charity provided more than 6,600 dollars for the purchase of medicines and equipment. The baby was born from a woman who married her cousin. He is the couple's first child.
