Health Desk—April 27, 2017: A Bangladeshi infant, who was born with three legs, can now walk and run like a normal person after receiving medication at an Australian hospital, according to the sources.

A team of Melbourne surgeons performed a rare reconstruction of the girl's lower body and internal organs.

Choity Khatun was born in a village in Bangladesh with a condition called cordial twinning. The medical condition means she had part of a twin develop in her perineum.

Monash Children's Hospital head surgery, professor Chris Kimber, said it was amazing she had survived her first two years.
