The Doctors share a photo of a teenager with a 7-inch tail. “Isn’t that great! I love it!” exclaims plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon. This tail is the longest human tail ever recorded.
Dr. Ordon explains that as we develop embryologically we do have a rudimentary tail. Dermatologist Dr. Sonia Batra adds that it’s between week 5-6 in embryo where we temporarily have this tail, but typically, it is absorbed back into the body.
Dr. Ordon shares that this teenager who is now having the tail removed, originally decided to keep the tail, and x-rays found that there wasn’t anything dangerous like nerves or bones connecting it to the spine.
