It’s really a huge world, and it’s not surprising. I heard the news that someone had two penises before. It has been surprising. Now some experts have disclosed the world’s first case of having three penises at birth.
According to foreign media reports, a baby from Duhok province (Duhok), 3 months old, was examined in the hospital when the doctor was surprised to find that he had three penises.
Experts said that the baby’s family found two small bumps between his penis and scrotum, so they took him to the hospital for an examination and found that the two small bumps turned out to be penises. Finally, the two extra penises were removed in the hospital, and they performed well in the one-year follow-up after the operation.
This disease belongs to the “duplicate penis”, which can be divided into two types: branch penis (partially duplicate penis) and true double penis (completely duplicate penis). Duplicate penis is very rare, only one case per 5 million to 6 million live births.
In this baby, it belongs to the branch penis. Although the two extra penis have the cavernous body of the penis, they are not connected to the urethra. The operation is simpler and the extra penis can be removed easily.
The baby is currently developing normally, with only some fluid in the scrotum. However, it is still unclear why three penises grow. Experts have not found some genetic factors in the baby’s family history, and the baby’s mother has not been exposed to drugs or chemicals during pregnancy.
John Martin, an anatomy professor from the St. Louis University School of Medicine, said that he had also found that an organ donor had two full-sized penises and tested it genetically.
It turned out that some mutations were found in genes involved in the development of reproductive organs, including some genes that help to form hair-like structures called “ciliary hairs” on embryonic cells.
These “ciliary hairs” are very important for development and have the ability to oscillate rhythmically in a certain direction, thereby pushing secretions and granular substances that adhere to the epithelial surface in a certain direction. In addition, another gene commonly associated with the development of reproductive organs is “sonic hedgehog”, which is essential to promote the development and growth of embryos.
