A baby, Paul Mukisa who was born with four arms and four legs, which is a medical condition known as parasitic twinning has undergone a successful operation.


This additional body parts that were removed belonged to a conjoined twin who never developed fully.Though, Paul was also born with his heart and liver on the wrong side of his body. And three months after his birth, he was operated in Uganda.

Dr Nasser Kakembo, one of the surgeons involved in the procedure s said the operation was a success.
“There were no intraoperative or postoperative complications,” he said.

“The baby was given general anaesthesia and the torso and trunk of the parasitic twin – which had two arms but no head or heart – was detached from the host baby. “Then we also detached the lower limbs of the parasitic twin from the host, which included disarticulating the right and left lower limbs as they were attached by the joints. “We controlled the bleeding and fashioned skin flaps to close the resulting wound.”
