A six-year-old boy with 15 fingers and 16 toes has undergone surgery to remove his extra digits.
The unnamed Chinese child had four fingers on one hand and three on the other fused together.
He now has ten fingers and ten toes following a six-and-a-half hour operation at a hospital in Shenyang, Liaoning, to remove the surplus 11 digits.
The boy has a condition known as polydactyly, in which one of a variety of genetic disorders - which can be inherited, or are new mutations - gives rise to excess digits.
