The doctors who reported the incident stated that the boy was born in a normal condition. His mother also had no problems.

Usually, in the case of aphallia, doctors perform phalloplasty. However, in the case of the Iranian boy, the Daily Mail reports, the doctors recommended sex reassignment and feminization surgery to create a “vagina.” They also recommended estrogen therapy during the boy's puberty.

reported whether the boy was going to have a feminization operation.
