Health: People with Extra Organs and Weird Abnormalities

1. The woman who was born with two private parts

Hazel Jones always wondered why she suffered from terrible cramps and heavy periods during puberty. However, it wasn’t until she turned 18 that she was given her astonishing diagnosis; she has two vaginas.

The blonde 27-year-old woman from High Wycombe has the million-in-one condition calleduterus didelphys, which means that she has two separate uteruses and cervixes.

Hazel went to the doctor after her long-term boyfriend told her that she was “different” in the genital area. Hazel says that she is comfortable with having the condition, despite the fact that she had to lose her virginity twice, essentially.

 

2. The man who has two private parts

 Double Dick Dude's Memoir Reads Like a 'Letters to Penthouse' Reject

A man with two functioning penises took questions on Reddit’s “Ask Me Anything” and it was unlike any other Q&A you’re likely to read, amassing more than 15,000 comments.

The man, who calls himself “DoubleDickDude” (DDD), was born with diphallia, a rare congenital condition that causes him to have two sex organs. There are reportedly around 100 cases of Diphallia worldwide.

Both private parts are in the 6-inch range, but DDD says that one can get as large as 7 inches if he’s really aroused.

3.The man who was born with three legs and two hearts
Francesco Lentini - a man with three legs

George Lippert was born in Germany in 1844. In addition to being born with three legs, he was also born with two functioning hearts, although that condition was unknown until his autopsy in 1906. His third leg was fully formed and even possessed an extra toe, giving Lippert a total of sixteen. The leg was not functional. Lippert claimed that his leg had been fully functional until it sustained a fracture.

Early in his career George was billed as the “only Three Legged Man on Earth” and he proved to be quite an attraction. Lippert even worked an exhibit with P. T. Barnum. However, evidence indicates that he may not have been the easiest person with whom to do business. No photographs exist of George Lippert, except for a pitch card of a painting of Lippert that is shown above.

Lippert had a three-legged rival named Francesco Lentini. His fate was far more successful and he lived a long life, got married, and had children. He died in 1966 at the age of 78.

Francesco (pictured on the right) was born in 1889 in Sicily. He was actually born with four legs, but the fourth limb was so poorly developed that he used to be considered a three-legged man. His third leg was fully functional. However, he also had a set of sixteen toes, and he had two sets of working male genitals.

4. The woman with two uteruses who gave birth to triplets
 Mother Gives Birth To Triplets From Two Seperate Wombs In Northam

It might seem unusual for a woman to have two uteruses, but the condition, known as uterine didelphys, occurs in about one in 1,000 women. In fact, Hannah Kersey, her mother, and her sister all have two wombs. But Hannah made history in 2006 when she gave birth to triplets; the 23-year-old woman from Northam in Devon had identical twins Ruby and Tilly, who were born from one womb, and Grace, who was born from the other.

There have been about 70 known pregnancies in separate wombs in the past 100 years, but the case of triplets is the first of its kind and doctors estimate the likelihood is about one in 25 million.

5. Ella Harper, also known as “The Camel Girl.” She got the name because she preferred to walk on all fours.

Ella was born with a strange and rare orthopedic condition that caused her legs to bend backwards.

Ella was born with a strange and rare orthopedic condition that caused her legs to bend backwards. During her life she worked as a circus performer, earning an impressive $200 a week, which would be about $5000 today. She lived from 1870 to 1921.

 

6. Fannie Mills, also known as “The Ohio Big Foot Girl.”

“The Ohio Big Foot Girl” was born in Sussex, England either in 1859 or 1860 to English migrants who settled near Sandusky, Ohio.

Fannie had a condition known as Milroy Disease, which caused her feet to grow to an abnormally large size.  At their biggest, her feet were 17 inches long.The family believed her illness resulted from a “maternal impression” when Mr. Mills, her father, made the pregnant Mrs. Mills wash the swelled leg of a horse.

Her career began in 1885, when she entered the museum circuit, accompanied by a nurse, Mary Brown. After the offer of $5000 and a “well-stocked farm” to anyone willing to marry the big-footed girl, she eventually married Mary’s brother, William Brown.

 

7. Maurice Tillet “The French Angel”, inspiration for Shrek?

Maurice was a two time heavy weight champion in the early 1900’s and a movie star during the 1940’s. As a teenager, he was diagnosed with acromegaly, which causes bones to overgrow and thicken. I certainly wouldn’t want to face him in the ring.

8. Jean-Jacques Libbera, The Double-Bodied Man

Jean was unique in that he had a parasitic twin attached to his chest area. X-rays revealed that a small head with a circumference of six inches was embedded inside Jean’s body. He even named the twin Jacques.
9. Josephine Myrtle Corbin, 4 Legged Woman
Josephene Myrtle Corbin, the Four-Legged Woman, was born in Lincoln County, Tennessee in 1868. Rather than having a parasitic twin, Myrtle’s extra legs resulted from an even rarer form of conjoined twinning known as dipygus, which gave her two complete bodies from the waist down. She had two small pelves side-by-side, and each of her smaller inner legs was paired with one of her outer legs. She could move the smaller legs but was unable to use them for walking. At the age of 19, she married a doctor named Clinton Bicknell and had four daughters and a son. It has been said that three of her children were born from one set of organs, two from the other. Myrtle died on May 6, 1928.
