Amrita Saxena of Uttar Pradesh said her 1-year-old son, Akshat Saxena, has undergone several surgeries since his birth to remove the extra digits, and doctors are planning further procedures to give him thumbs, the Press Trust of India reported Tuesday.
Saxena said her family contacted Guinness after learning about the previous record holder, a Chinese boy born with 15 fingers and 16 toes.
Akshat's condition is a genetic disorder known as polydactyly, his family said.
