A baby who was born in Iraq three months ago has been reported by a team of doctors to have three penises. The case has never been reported before and is a condition doctors have called triphallia. The case of triphalia was reported in Duhok, in the north of the country.

Doctors only discovered the child had three penises three months after he was born.

His parents took him to the doctors after they discovered “two skin projections” at the base of his scrotum.

One measured 2cm while the other was 1cm – only one of the penises had a head.
