The kid's mom has one additional finger on every hand, which may clarify how he inherited the condition, known as polydactyly
An infant is set to undergo various corrective surgeries after he was conceived with 15 fingers and 16 toes.
The eight-month-old boy has an astounding 31 digits - yet no thumbs on either palm .
He was born to migrant workers in the town of Zhongping in China's southern Hunan territory.
His mom has one additional finger on every hand, which may clarify how he acquired the condition, known as polydactyly.
Polydactyly occurs in an expected one in each 1,000 births - however genuine cases like this are uncommon.
Unlike to his mom, the boy's case is more urgent on the grounds that the additional digits could affect his capacity to walk properly later on.
After learning about the kid's additional digits the No 6 hospital of Ningbo City offered to slash the family's medical expenses - evaluated to be around £58,000 - and perform out the surgery in three stages.
Doctor Xu Jihai said the operations will include removing the kid's additional fingers and toes and inevitably reshaping his remaining digits.
The high-risk surgeries will focus on his bones, joints, skin, nails and basic veins, making them testing, as well as requiring a broad post-operation recuperation aregime.
The primary phase of the newborn child's treatment has as of now been finished, reports said, with surgeons performing surgery on his feet.
On the off chance that all works out as expected, each of the three phases ought to be done before the kid begins school.
The hospital has guaranteed follow-up treatments for him for the following 16 years as he grows up.
