Succesful surgery in a Girl with eight limbs

Lakshmi is the hindu goddess of of wealth, fortune, love and beauty, the lotus flower and fertility. She is represented by an icon of a lady with four arms.

Lakshmi Tatma is a girl who is two years old but she was born with 8 limbs, because she is joined at the pelvis to what is, in fact, a headless, undeveloped twin (parasitic twin or to be more specific, ischiopagus cojoined twin).

This is surely an abnormal feature and it has attracted media attention worldwide.

The 24-hour-long surgery to remove the extra limbs of this Indian girl born with four arms and four legs was a success, doctors announced Wednesday.

A team of more than 30 physicians removed Lakshmi’s extra limbs, salvaged her organs, and rebuilt her pelvis area, Dr. Sharan Patil said from a hospital in the southern Indian city of Bangalore, India.
