In a rare case, a baby girl was born with 26 fingers in Deeg district of India’s Rajasthan. The newborn has seven fingers in each hand and six toes in each leg.

According to the Indian media reports, the doctors said that the extra fingers and toes were due to a rare condition caused by a genetic disorder.

The girl’s family members believe that she is an incarnation of a goddess they worship.

“The girl has seven fingers in each hand and six toes in each leg. The condition is called Polydactyly, which is rare but there is no harm or side effect of this condition on the body,” Dr BS Soni from the CHC Kaman said.

The newborn’s maternal uncle Deepak said he believed that the girl was a blessing to the family and an incarnation of goddess Dholagarh Devi.

“She has come to our home as a goddess. We all are lucky that ‘Lakshmi’ has taken birth in our family,” he added.
