Baby Born With 16cm Human Tail Goes Viral

The photos of a baby born with a 16-centimeter human tail are now circulating online and garnered various reactions from social media users.

A baby girl named Dhaka Tribune was born with a visible human tail in Noakhali last May 30, 2019.

Last week, the Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) Pediatric surgeon Dr. Nazrul Islam Akash performed a surgical operation aiming to remove the tail.

The surgeon successfully removed the 16-centimeter tail during the surgical operation at Al-Karim General Hospital in Dhaka.

“This case is not as critical as it is rare. The tail was without nerve, bone, and was not connected to the spinal cord. Human tails are of two kinds: pseudo tail and true tail. It was a true tail, like appendages (extension of skin like a nail). It is not harmful to the body,” Dr Nazrul said.
