Diphallia - Wikipedia
A child from Uttar Pradesh, India, was born with three penises and no anus. Although he could only use one of the penises to urinate, two of them had erectile tissue — three masses of expandable, sponge-like tissue involved in penile erection — while the third was undeveloped and non-functional. And this boy was no exception, devoid of an anus and thus unable to pass feces normally. To correct the latter problem, he boy underwent a surgical procedure two years ago called a colostomy. In an attempt to free the child from his colostomy bag, last month surgeons at Sion Hospital created a path through his rectum to facilitate the passage of stools through a newly-fashioned anus.
