- Boy is born with 2 penises.
- The doctors had to cut one off.
- Both reproductive organs functioned properly.
Child is born two penises. Some babies are born with extra body part. It could be an extra arm, or a leg…or even two penises. Some are conjoined twins and have to undergo surgery, risking their lives.
Surprisingly, a baby in Brazil was born with two reproductive organs, shocking both his parents and the doctors who delivered him. It’s a rare occurrence and his parents had to find a solution.
Boy is born with two penises
According to The Sun, the little one had to go into surgery very young since it’s best to address situations like this as quickly as possible. The parents, who were astonished, chose to have doctors remove one of his penises and, ultimately, they chose to remove the larger one.
It is worth mentioning that both of the baby’s reproductive organs could become erect but the little boy could only urinate out of the smaller one. So doctors had no choice but to remove the larger one. The little boy, who was born in Brazil, is one in a million baby boys born with a duplicate penis.
The condition is called diphalia
This incident occurred in São Paulo, Brazil. They said that to date only 100 men with the condition, called diphalia, have been reported in medical literature. Because it’s such a rare phenomenon, it was uncharted territory for the doctors who were in the delivery room.
Health experts described this particular case of diphalia as “complete” rather than having just an “accessory” penis. The only other case in São Paolo was an anonymous patient who was already two years old (for unexplained reasons) when he underwent similar surgery. Filed Under: Boy is born two penises
Doctors cut off his largest member
In this case, the doctors had planned to save the left member, which was larger, and get rid of the smaller right member. Both penises, although they differed in size, were visibly similar and appeared functional.
The mother said that both penises had the ability to become erect. But tests showed that each penis had only one of two corpora cavernosa, which are spongy columns of tissue that fill with blood and cause the penis to harden, according to The Sun.

Only one penis could urinate
The doctors discovered that the boy could urinate from one penis. The surgeons completely removed the left penis and filmed the process in a video published in an online journal. The surgery was a complete success, leaving the little one with only one member.
So far it is still unclear how well the boy will be able to achieve erections in the future, given that he only has one erection chamber left in his penis. But, these cases are very rare and a similar incident has rarely been seen, so of course this went viral on social media. Filed Under: Boy is born two penises
