SHANGHAI, China -- Doctors in Shanghai on Tuesday were considering surgery options for a 2-month-old boy born with an unusually well-formed third arm.

It says they're currently discussing surgical options... so my guess would be that they WILL remove one.

If the extra arm is functional he could have an advantage.

Seriously though, does the kid live downriver of a polluting plant or something? He looks pretty healthy other than the semi-shock of seeing an arm where there isn't supposed to be one.

If the arm stays he could make a good goalie (soccer or hockey), baseball player, football receiver, etc...as the list goes on and on.  Wink

Poor kid, is it me or does the kid's head look larger than average. Apart from that the hand can be an obstrction as well as an advantage. Always best if it is removed.

3 fists are better than 2. He'll learn to kick ass then kids will leave him alone.

In most cases, Bullying is not violence, It can be mentally painful, something having 3 fists wouldn't accommodate..

I think we need Alex's expertise here.

He does look very healthy.

I wonder how the movement of the arm is, and if taking it "off", will it hinder, in some way the use of his two other arms? Maybe the brain, overtime, will adjust and in the future will not recognize that it was there when born.

I'm blabbering and will stop now.

Cute little guy.

That's pretty much a guarantee, as your brain isn't fully developed until you're ten years old and this kid's probably only months at most.

Theres a girl down the road from me (roughly 8) who has only 2 big toes and 2 little toes and her left hand is sort of normal after a few ops and her right hand is well you cant tell how many fingers she's got.

There are many plusses and negatives to having 3 arms but i think the best thing is to cut it off.

Quoting JCS17 (Thread starter):
Extra digits are always a blast, but an extra limb? That's awesome!

I wouldn't say that. It is either 1. a sign that there was another embryo, that regressed at some point and left a "part" attached to the sibling. Similar to what happens in Siamese twins. Sometimes there is even a rare condition called fetus-in-fetus, in which a small, deformed, hypoplastic baby is found inside the abdomen of a newborn.
or
2. This is a sign of severe environmental pollution, which brings about mutations and malformations like these. Cyclops, anencephaly, and so on. Particularly in China such malformations are becoming increasingly common.

Quoting 9VSPO (Reply 3):
Will they remove one?

Certainly. It is necessary to bring the child back to normality, particularly so that the above attached limb can function properly. The problem is how to remove the extra-numerary limb without compromising innervation (i.e. brachial plexus) and vascularization of the "good" limb. Such social stigma is a rather bad thing for a child. And by looking in the arm, it might be rather difficult since it seems to possess an intact joint at the ribs.
Interesting case, actually. I would love to operate on him...  Smile
