Doctors at the Anhui Provincial Children’s Hospital said they were surprised by the case. “It’s very rare, about one in a million. We have never seen anything like this before,” said Dr. Sun Jun.
X-rays had shown that the tail was connected to a fatty tumor within the spinal column. Dr. Sun said the surgery had been successful, but it was still too early to say whether further treatment would be necessary.
