A baby girl born without all four limbs due to a rare genetic disorder has left doctors and family members baffled in India.
A woman, who local media report is 28 years old, gave birth to the child in the Sakla village of Sironj Tehsil in the Vidisha district yesterday.
According to reports, the baby was born with an autosomal recessive congenital disorder – Tetra-Amelia – which is characterised by the absence of all four limbs.
Footage shows a woman holding the baby which is missing both its arms and legs and is wrapped in a blanket.Dr Suresh Aggarwal, a paediatrician at Rajiv Gandhi Smriti Hospital, Sironj, said the baby is perfectly healthy.
Doctors suggest the baby will be taken in for further assessments to check if her internal organs have developed properly.
