Chinese boy born with a tail

Surgeons in one of the hospital in China are reluctant to remove a nearly 10 inch tail that was  born with a seven-month-old boy at the city of Guangdong in Southern China.

The baby boy is Xiao Wei and his mother asked  the surgeons to remove the tail but she was advised it is not possible at this point in time.

Dr. Huang Chuanping says: “if you cut it, it would grow: We have to repair the spinal canal to stop its rise first.”

The baby is reportedly suffered from Myelomeningocele, a common type of spina bifida,  “a developmental congenital disorder caused by the incomplete closing of the embryonic neural tube.
