They say that man is the crown of nature and its most perfect creation. If we were different, had a different number of fingers on the hands or body structure, then humanity would be quite different, not a fact that is reasonable. And so nature lovingly honed every detail of its creation for millions of years.
You can safely say that there is nothing superfluous in us. True, sometimes genes malfunction and people with anomalies appear – superfluous parts of the body. People are frightened of such individuals, and for scientists they are an interesting object. The most famous cases of this kind will be discussed.
A woman who had two vaginas.
A woman named Hazel Jones had a hard time bearing her puberty. It was accompanied by severe pain and unexpected convulsions. And only in 18 years the girl was put an amazing diagnosis, which all explained – she had two vaginas. Today this blond American woman from High Wycombe is 27 years old. She says that she was born with an abnormality of the uterus called Uterus Didelphys. This means that the person initially had two uterus and two of their necks. This is a very rare case that occurs once in a million. After the guy Hesel noticed strangeness in the structure of her genitals, the girl turned to the doctor. Today she lives an ordinary life, and the structure of her genitals does not cause her anxiety. It was only her virginity that she had to lose twice.
A man who has grown two penises.
This man prefers to hide under the nickname DoubleDickDude. Nature awarded him two penises at once, quite functional. And the blame for all this congenital anomaly is diphalia, which implies the appearance of two genital organs in a man instead of one. In total, not more than a hundred such cases are known in the world. The length of each penis is 15 centimeters, but the owner of such a “weapon” assures that in case of a strong erection the size can reach 18 centimeters. In support of his “talents”, DoubleDickDude presented a couple of obvious photos, which it is better not to publish.
Boy with an extra thread in the DNA.
Our DNA is so complex that until scientists can not even figure out what is hidden in it. But a two-year-old boy was found whose DNA showed an additional thread. This unique diagnosis was the first in history. Alfi Klump was born with a severe disability, also blind. Doctors conducted a complete examination, which revealed the presence of an additional thread in the seventh chromosome – an unprecedented anomaly never before! The case is so unique that specialists can not even come up with a name for it. Nor can doctors tell how such a deviation will affect the life expectancy of a boy – increase it or cut it. The parents of Alfie, Richard and Gemma Klump, realized that something was wrong with their son when they returned from the hospital. The boy suddenly stopped breathing and turned blue. Parents immediately took the baby to the hospital. And already six weeks after the birth, the doctors discovered an additional strand of DNA from the child.
An Indian boy who has extra limbs on his chest.
Stories of Siamese twins always attract attention. This time the press surprising incident occurred with an Indian boy. He was born at once with eight limbs. In another country, he would become an outcast, and in his homeland – almost a god. Nevertheless, in 2010 he underwent an operation that gave a chance to live normally. And then the boy was only seven years old. At birth on a stomach at Дипака the Pasvan there was a Siamese twin-parasite, with two hands, two legs and a head. In the house of the boy in the northern state of Bihar, pilgrims immediately appeared, who saw in an unusual person nothing else than the incarnation of the god Vishnya. It is just that it is customary to depict with numerous limbs. But the very family of Deepak did not like such an intrusive interest. They asked for help from people to raise money for surgery and remove excess limbs.In one of the hospitals in Bangalore, they were offered an operation for free. A poor family simply could not collect 50 thousand pounds, for her it is initially impossible. But the four-hour complex and innovative operation was successful.
A child with two faces. Today, the Chinese boy Kankang is not two years old.
His face amazes and frightens. Unfortunately, he was born with a deformation of the name “transverse cleft of the face.” The boy looks as if he has two faces or a mask. The young mother of the child, Yee Xiliaon, serves in the company that produces electronics in the Chinese province of Guangdong. During pregnancy, all tests indicated that the baby will be born healthy. And only after his birth did his mother’s eyes reveal a terrible truth. The child looks really strange – on his face as if placed a huge mask. The cleft in this case crossed almost the whole face from ear to ear. The poor mother was not allowed to look at the newborn for a while until he forced her husband to get permission to communicate with her own child. And when she saw his face, she almost became distraught with grief. Nobody knows why such an anomaly was formed. But there were ways to treatment, expensive, though (80-100 thousand dollars). The boy’s family managed to find a sufficient amount, and now he is receiving treatment at the Military Hospital of the People’s Liberation Army.
A man with two hearts who survived a double heart attack.
When the patient entered the emergency department in Verona, Italy, nothing unusual was found. Yes, breathing was difficult, increased sweating and low blood pressure. Everything said that a person has problems with the cardiovascular system. The doctors decided that it was a cardiac arrest. But a detailed examination of the patient revealed an unusual deviation. The patient had two hearts, while the second appeared not at birth, but after a medical procedure. In her course, an additional organ was put on a healthy organ. Heterotopic transplantation is that a person with a sick heart is added one more, but healthy. There is a certain risk that after a successful operation a person will have two heart rhythms, independent of each other. This can happen if one body works better than the other. Most likely, this is what happened to the unfortunate Italian. The doctors tried to correct the rhythm disturbances, but because of this, two hearts stopped altogether. Then they again started using the defibrillator. At present, the patient feels well, and both his hearts work in the same regime.
A man with three legs and two hearts.
Again, it is worth noting that the presence of a pair of hearts in the human body is not that rare. Especially when it comes to Siamese twins. John Lipper was born in Germany in 1844. He had two working hearts and three legs. True, there was nothing known about this internal feature until the body was opened in 1906. And the third limb was fully formed, it was also an additional finger. Thus, only Lippert had 16 fingers. But she could not really perform her functions. Lippert said that this leg was not suitable for walking, it could only be based on it. But this possibility also disappeared after an accidental fracture of an extra limb. George began his circus career as the only three-legged man in the world, and even managed to work in the circus of Barnum. Contemporaries recall that Lipper was not the most pleasant interlocutor, and in business he was not decent. And photos of the unique person practically were not kept – only one has reached us. And the rival of Lippert was Francesco Lentini. His fate was much more successful – he lived a long life, was able to marry and brought up two children. He was born in Sicily in 1889. Francesco had four legs, but one of them was so small that it was impossible to use.Lentini was considered a three-legged man, while the extra limb was fully functional. On the feet of the Italian was only 16 fingers, in addition, also two full sex organs. This three-legged man died in 1966 at the age of 78 years.
25-year-old Brazilian Maria de Nazaré was told that she bore two twins. But immediately before the birth of ultrasound appeared a strange picture – in children one for two, the heart, lungs, liver and pelvis. But the head and spine were separate. In the Brazilian city of Anayas with the help of Caesarean section, an unusual child was born, he weighed 4 kilograms. The woman gave her children names Emmanuel and Jesus in honor of the religious holiday. This state, when a pair of Siamese twins have one body, is called a dicephaly. The doctors treating the woman told me that she almost lost her mind when she saw the two-headed son. It is interesting that for Brazil itself this is not the first time. Back in 2011, 27-year-old Sueli Ferreira gave birth to the same child in the state of Paraíba. But the kid could live only a few hours, because one of the heads could not get enough oxygen. Doctors say that it is impossible to remove one of the heads, because there is a brain functioning there and there, and each head sucks on the mother’s breast.
A woman with two uterus, who gave birth to the triplets.
In medicine, there is the term Uterine Didelphys, which refers to the existence of two female queens in the female body. This phenomenon in general is not particularly rare, it occurs in every one thousand women. For Hannah Kersey, this anomaly did not become something surprising – it was like that of her mother and sister. And in 2006 the woman was able to become famous after she gave birth to the triplets. The unique thing was that the 23-year-old woman carried Tilly and Ruby twins in one womb, and Grace in the other. In total, about 70 such cases have been documented in the last century, but the appearance of triplets is a unique phenomenon. Doctors say that the probability of such a birth is one chance at 25 million.
A woman with a third breast.
It turns out that between 0.4 and 6 percent of women at birth have a third breast. The extra mammary gland is usually located in the area of the armpit. Rarely, but the number of mammary glands can be much larger, and they are located on the stomach, and on the groin, on the hips and even on the back. In 1998, in Oklahoma recorded a case where a woman counted immediately 10 rather developed mammary glands. Today, the tissues of excess breast doctors are often diagnosed as a cyst and removed immediately after birth. If you leave it, it will not develop, but will remain in the form of the third nipple. It can even emit liquid, but it can not be fed with it. A spectacle of a woman with three breasts can be seen at least in the movie “Remember All”. In practice, it turns out that rarely when the extra breast grows to the same size as the main ones. But there is a porn actress Taylor Chanel, who really has a third breast. That’s just it – the result of surgery and prosthetics. Such an unusual phenomenon is its chip in the world of “adult video”.
