In rare cases, twins or triplets fail to form adequately and separately, partially merging.

Such cases result in either conjoined twins or babies with extra limbs being born.

Raju never underwent an ultrasound during the pregnancy and didn’t know that she was carrying twins.

Doctors believe that the extra limbs can be removed through surgery.
