The parents of a baby born with a total of 15 fingers and 16 toes are desperately seeking medical attention for their son, who has an extreme case of polydactyly.
The shocked parents say there were no indications of his deformities on pre-natal scans, newspaper People's Daily reports.
Incredibly the three-month-old, nicknamed Honghong, also has two palms on each hand and no thumbs.
Doctors at their local hospital in Hunan, central China, tell them surgery will be extremely difficult.
Polydactyly, where children are born with extra fingers or toes, appears in approximately one in 1,000 cases, but having that many extra digits is extremely rare.
Honghong's mum also suffers from polydactyly, and has extra digits on both her hands and feet.
When she was pregnant, she worried about passing polydactyly onto the baby so ensured she had multiple examinations.
Half way through her pregnancy, she visited a special maternity hospital in to get a three-dimensional ultrasound and was again told that the baby was fine.
Honghong's parents were horrified to find that their baby's polydactyly is even more severe than his mum's.
Each of Honghong's feet has eight toes. One of his hands has eight fingers and the other has seven.
He will need to undergo surgery between six months and a year before the bones set, but surgery will be very difficult.
The surgeries are likely to cost hundreds of thousands of yuan (tens of thousands of dollars), which the family can't afford.
