Forty cases diagnosed since the 19th century

From the birth of the child, surgeons removed this amazing growth. Previously, they had made sure that it did not contain cartilage or bone, and that it was not connected to the nervous system. Analysis actually indicated that this tail was made up of skin, fatty tissue, nerves, as well as blood vessels.

According to the doctors in their publications, such cases are extremely rare. The first cases were reported in the 19th century, and only about 40 have been documented in the scientific literature, they say.
