Pic shows:  Yang Yang¿s growth before it was removed.nnDoctors in China have removed a 15-centimetre (5.91-inch) "tail" from a baby boy which grew as part of a deformity during his mother¿s pregnancy.nnThe family of the child who had been nicknamed "little monkey" by his relatives, waited almost a year before finally deciding to have the surgery.nnYang Yang, who is now 11 months old, was born with the tail-like growth identified as a neural tube deformity - a phenomenon with a 2 to 3 percent chance of occurring, which usually forms during the third month of pregnancy.nnYang Yang¿s mother said that the family noticed the growth as soon as the child was born in Junlian County of Yibin, a city in south-western China¿s Sichuan Province, but they decided to avoid surgery if at all possible.nnThe mum, unnamed in reports, said: "It wasn¿t a big bother in the beginning - I¿d just lift the ¿tail¿ when I needed to change his nappies."nnBut several months later Yang Yang started developing odd symptoms such as irregular bowel movements and a weakness in his legs, the mum said.nnThe family then decided to have the growth surgically removed at Southwest Hospital in the neighbouring city of Chongqing.nnLin Jiangkai, lead physician in Yang Yang¿s operation, said the growth was most probably due to the child¿s mother not taking enough folic acid supplements - also referred to as vitamin M or vitamin Bc - during pregnancy.nnThe tail was removed during a successful surgery, with Lin noting that the child could have had developmental problems in his lower limbs if the family had waited any longer.nn(ends)n

Médicos removeram uma cauda de 15 centímetros de comprimento em um bebê que nasceu com o defeito genético raro.

A família de Yang Yang, que foi apelidado de “macaco” por seus parentes, esperou até que ele completasse 11 meses de vida para poder retirar a cauda.

“Não era um grande incômodo no início – eu tinha que levantar a “cauda” quando precisava trocar suas fraldas,” comentou a mãe da criança, que vive em Yibin, na província de Sichuan, sudoeste da China.

Ela finalmente decidiu pela operação depois de Yang Yang desenvolver vários sintomas, incluindo movimentos intestinais irregulares e fraqueza na perna.

A deformidade tubo neural acontece durante o terceiro mês de gravidez.

O médico que removeu a cauda no Hospital Southwest, em Chongqing, disse que o crescimento provavelmente foi causado devido a mãe da criança não tomar suplementos de ácido fólico suficientes (vitamina H ou aC) durante a gravidez.
