Extra arm to be removed from Chinese girl

A girl in China is scheduled to undergo a lengthy four-stage operation to remove an "extra" arm growing from her back. Ren Xin, 11, will have the extra limb removed by surgeons in Beijing next week.

According to Chinese media reports, less than 20 similar cases have been reported from different parts of the nation.

Earlier this month, Indian doctors successfully removed four “extra” limbs from two-year-old Lakshmi. We hope that Chinese doctors will successfully remove the extra limb from Ren Xin's back. Link
