Together with Brazilian doctors, researchers from Ohio's Center for Fetal and Placental Research examined the case. The mother of the child had no prior history of drug use or sickness, according to the researchers' report.

Spina bifida, a rare hereditary disease that develops when the spinal cord doesn't grow properly, caused a baby to be born in Brazil with a 6-cm-long "tail." The girl underwent successful surgery.

According to medical professionals, the newborn was born with an extra appendage because of a gap in her vertebrae, according to The New Zealand Herald.

The "tail" was removed when the hole was closed during the procedure. The lumbosacral region, which connects the spine to the pelvis, is where the tail is produced, according to medical professionals at a children's hospital in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
