Doctors remove horns from woman's head

Doctors in India have removed two horns growing out of a woman's head.

The 40-year-old still has two other horns protruding from her scalp.

The abnormality is said to be due to unhygienic conditions.

The seven-centimetre horns were removed in about 15 minutes at a hospital at Jodhpur.

Doctors said though the woman's grandfather, father and sister had developed similar horns, the deformity was not hereditary.

"It happens when oil ducts in the human system get choked. The oil secreted by the sebaceous glands develop into horns," Dr Sanjeev Malhotra told the Asian News International.

The woman's family has refused to comment on the abnormality which has affected them for many decades
