Human tails.

Abstract

Two children and one infant with a "human tail" are presented. The patho-embryology of this medical curiosity is briefly discussed. Treatment is usually unnecessary but resection of part of the coccyx together with the "tail" may become indicated by coccygodynia or for aesthetic reasons.
