Bangladeshi girl born with three legs can walk again after surgery

A Bangladeshi toddler born with a third leg attached to her pelvis is returning home after successful surgery in Australia. Choity Khatun, who is three, was born with caudal twinning, meaning that part of a twin had developed in her pelvis. Australian surgeons spent months working out how to remove the extra limb and reconstruct her pelvic area. The toddler was brought to Australia from her village in Bangladesh by a charity, Children First Foundation.

Dr Kimber said the toddler, who is partially blind, was now walking and running around, and had put on weight. He said she might need further corrective surgery during her teenage years but would be able to return home to Bangladesh with her mother “without medication or surgical aids”.

Her mother, Shima Khatun, told Australian media on Thursday she was looking forward to going home to her family and watching her daughter play.
“Everything is good now… she can play like other babies… she is the same [as them],” she said.
