In a rare medical occurrence, a young boy has been found to possess three p-nises, a condition known as triphallia, according to a study published in the International Journal of Surgery Case. The revelation came to light when the toddler was brought to the hospital due to swelling in the scr0tum.
During the examination, doctors discovered that the child had an additional 0.8-inch organ emerging near the base of his primary p-nis, with another 1-centimeter-long p-nis situated beneath his scr0tum. Triphallia is an extremely uncommon congenital anomaly, affecting only one in every 5–6 million live births, as stated in the study.
Further evaluation revealed that only the main p-nis was functional, while the other two lacked a urethra. Consequently, the decision was made to surgically remove the two additional p-nises that were attached to the primary one. This peculiar anomaly has baffled medical professionals, as the child had not been exposed to drugs in the womb, and his family had no history of genetic abnormalities.
After the successful removal of the extra phalluses, the Iraqi baby was discharged without reporting any complications. The report Daily Record acknowledged that triphallia is an unprecedented condition in humans, emphasizing that each case is unique and poses challenges in terms of medical, ethical, and cosmetic aspects.
Although this is the first documented instance of triphallia, there have been previous cases of diphallia, or having two p-nises. The earliest recorded occurrence dates back to the 1600s. In the United States, it is estimated that one in every six million boys is born with diphallia. The condition is sometimes associated with other abnormalities, such as having two scr0tums or an-ses. In most cases, the two p-nises are of equal size and located side by side, while in others, the smaller p-nis may be positioned above the larger one.
