A deformed baby girl has been born in South Africa with a penis on her forehead.
The infant, who hasn’t survived was also a cyclops with one eye on its forehead next to the penis. A 16-year-old girl gave birth to the baby at the Dr Malizo Mpehle Memorial Hospital in Tsolo, doctors report that the baby was severely deformed and its intestines were outside its body.
“She was born with a small penis on the forehead and one eye on the forehead” department of health spokesman Sizwe Kupelo explained.
“She was born with no nose and where there are supposed to be eyes there was nothing, just skin covered over the area.”
Kupelo is concerned about high numbers of babies with deformities in the area, and even suspects the problem may be down to ‘traditional medicine’.
“We are counting 50 deformities within a period of two years,” Kupelo said.
“We don’t have a documented cause.”
Recent cases include conjoined twins and babies born with their hearts or brains on the outside.
“Where necessary we attempt procedures but unfortunately the majority die,” Kupelo conceded.
