Doctors stunned after a baby is born with a horn-like structure instead of legs

A baby has been born in India with a horn-like structure below its torso instead of legs.

The baby was born in Manpura Primary Health Center, in central India's Shivpuri district.

Doctors of the Primary Health Centre immediately referred the baby and the mother to the Shivpuri District Hospital.

According to local reports, a doctor at the hospital stated that the newborn was undeveloped and weighs just 2.31 lbs - which is less than normal.

Despite that, the child remains in a stable condition.

The newborn has since been kept under the supervision of special doctors in the Special Newborn Care Unit (SNCU) of the hospital.

It was not immediately clear as to whether the baby had any adverse health conditions as a result of the medical rarity.

The baby was born on August 26.

Just last month The Mirror reported on a baby which sparked disbelief in India after it was born with an extra pair of legs and arms.

The tot was hailed a "miracle of nature", and has even been compared to a reincarnated version of God.

Extraordinary pictures showed the child - who was born weighing 6.5lbs - with an extra four limbs protruding from the stomach.

The baby was delivered at the Shahabad Community Health Centre over the weekend in Hardoi, a district in the north of India, in the state of Uttar Pradesh.

Mum Kareena, who didn't disclose her surname, was raced to the hospital after experiencing labour pains on Saturday (July 2) and gave birth soon after.

Miraculously both the mother and child were said to be healthy and doing well.

After news spread across the area, locals reportedly flocked to the hospital to see the multiple-limbed goddess first hand.
