A girl in Mexico has been born with a tail.

The extremely rare phenomenon has been recorded fewer than 200 times.

The unidentified infant was born via a C-section at a rural hospital in Nuevo Leon to healthy parents in their late twenties.

But doctors quickly spotted a 5.7cm-long (2.2 inch) tail that was 'soft', 'covered in skin and fine hair' and had a 'pointy' tip.

Detailing the incident inJournal of Paediatric Surgery Case Reports, doctors, led by DrJosue Rueda, believe the case is the first ever in Mexico.

The medics said the baby was born full-term and there were no complications during pregnancy.

Her parents already had a son who was healthy.

But shortly after she was delivered doctors quickly spotted the tail.

They said it was sticking out at the end of her tailbone with its base slightly to the left. It varied between 3mm and 5mm in diameter, narrowing towards the 'pointy' tip.
