A newborn with 14 fingers and 12 toes was delivered in a hospital in Rajasthan, Northwestern India.
The infant girl has six toes on each foot and seven fingers on each hand.
While doctors have described her condition as a genetic anomaly, her family are reportedly delighted and have publicly called her the reborn version of Dholagarh Devi, a well-known local deity whose temple is near where the girl was born.
A medic at the hospital where the baby was born, Dr BS Soni, said “There is no harm of any kind in having 26 fingers, but it is a genetic anomaly. The girl is otherwise absolutely healthy.”
It is not currently known whether the family are planning to have their newborn girl undergo surgery to reduce the number of digits on each limb.
