Unbelievable, but true. In Iran, a baby boy was born without a penis, an extremely rare phenomenon called aphallia.

This is an extremely rare case. While some are born with two penises, he was born without one. This phenomenon, medically called aphallia, occurs when the genitals do not develop normally in the womb during the first months of pregnancy. In total, less than 100 cases have been documented in the medical literature.

The little Iranian boy, whose case was reported in the journal Radiology Case Reports and reported by the Daily Mail, would have been born normally, in “good general condition”. His mother, whose identity has also not been released, did not report any problems during her pregnancy.

According to the latest information about the little boy, he has an intact scrotum and two testicles. Special tests performed months after his birth allowed doctors to determine how his unique urinary system worked. A special dye revealed a fistula, an abnormal connection between her bladder and rectum.

A vagina instead

Faced with this type of case, doctors generally suggest that the patient “fabricate” a penis, a process called phalloplasty. They may also make a urethral tube to reconnect her urinary system. But for some unknown reason, this time the specialists recommended a gender reassignment operation. They want to create a pseudo-vagina for her.

They also recommended to the patient’s family that he undergo estrogen therapy during puberty to suppress changes in his body, such as the development of facial hair and the deepening of his voice to conform to his new sex.
