    Baby Born With Third Arm

    http://www.local6.com/news/9290536/detail.html



    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.

    Neither of the boy's two left arms is fully functional and tests have so far been unable to determine which was more developed, said Dr. Chen Bochang, head of the orthopedics department at Shanghai Children's Medical Center.

    "His case is quite peculiar. We have no record of any child with such a complete third arm," Chen said in a telephone interview.

    The boy, identified only as "Jie-jie," also was born with just one kidney and may have problems that could lead to curvature of the spine, local media reports said. Jie-jie cried when either of his left arms was touched, but smiled and responded normally to other stimuli, the reports said.

    Chen said doctors hoped to work out a plan for surgery, but the boy's small size made it impossible to perform certain tests that would help them prepare.

    Media reports said other children have been reported born with additional arms and legs, but in those cases it was clear what limb was more developed.

    Chen's hospital is one of China's most experienced in dealing with unusual birth defects, including separating conjoined twins.

    Lets sign him to a 20 year contract! As a LHP he could easily pitch 200+ pitches

    It's going to be tough for him to find a three sleeved shirt.

    Too bad this is a family-friendly site. This would be a perfect opportunity to break out the 'third leg' and 'tripod' jokes.

    Yep. When I opened this thread, I fully expected to read about elephants holding apples...

    Who says you can't drive a stick shift and talk on a cell phone at the same time?

    I can't believe how insensitive everyone's being.

    Jeez.

    But I can't help but wonder. Do you think he's going to throw "righty," "lefty," or "center."

    My question is, does he have two shoulders? Where do both arms attach?

    Now when someone says, "To your left...no, your other left..." it makes sense.

    Also, I was thinking, he's going to have to spend 1.5x as much as everyone else on deodorant. Bummer.

    Wonder what they're going to do with it. The Reds are always looking for extra arms.
