6. Verdant Joshi

Verdant Joshi

Born in India, Verdant Joshi came out of his mother’s womb with his right foot weighing significantly more than his left foot. As a young child, Verdant’s right foot weighed 12 pounds, which wasn’t much more than his total body weight. The foot was enlarged and difficult to lift, which will undoubtedly make daily life a challenge for Verdant. Even so, the 5-year-old is able to run, jump, and play just like a normal boy. There are still people in his village who don’t want their children to play with Verdant, but he is proving himself to be quite a capable boy. Still, it would be helpful if doctors could figure out why this condition persists for Verdant and how they can get rid of it. Unfortunately, a diagnosis has not been made, even with dozens of doctors checking out Verdant’s foot.

Medical historian Lindsey Fitzharris, who has a PhD from Oxford University, previously told MailOnline the condition occurs from a failure of the normal vascular supply, when the umbilical cord fails to form two arteries.

As a result there is not sufficient blood supply reaching the foetus, she said.

The single artery 'steals' the blood and nutrition from the lower body, diverting it back up into the placenta.  

Suffering malnutrition, the foetus fails to develop two separate limbs. 

The condition is extremely rare, affecting one in 100,000 babies, but is 100 times more likely to occur in identical twins.

Dr Fitzharris added: 'Sirenomelia is extremely fatal.

'There are no accounts of anyone with this condition surviving in the past.

'Most died within days of being born due to kidney and bladder failure. 

'Even today, the odds are against those with sirenomelia, though there are a handful of examples of children living past infancy.'

In this case, the woman did not complain of any complication during her 30 week pregnancy. 

However, an ultrasound during the last stages of her pregnancy revealed the baby's kidneys had not developed.

This is the fourth case of mermaid syndrome in the world but the first case reported in India.

Dr Vandana said: ‘There are several causes of this condition like excessive medicine intake, a vitamin deficiency, genetics, past history or even maternal diabetes. 

'It also results from a failure of normal vascular supply from the lower aorta in uetro. 

'The operation in these cases is not possible due to the improper development of the body. 

'In some extreme rare cases, the kidneys can be transplanted but the survival rate is very low.
