aby Born With Extremely Rare Deformity Is Rejected By His Mum 'For Looking Like An Alien'
For one woman in India, her pregnancy provided a major shock. As the midwife delivered her child, everyone was shocked by what they saw.
Even some in the village the baby be exiled because it was an “alien.” The mother, Khalida Begum, agreed.
The infant was not normal. As a matter of fact, he looked very far from it.
As you can see in some of the photos, the unnamed baby was born with bulging eyes, incredibly thick and dense skin, and more alarming, a lack of an upper skull with the child’s brain being exposed.
When Khalida finally got the boy to a set of doctors, they diagnoses him with Harlequin ichthyosis.
The condition causes the organs to fail or develop wrong, and it turns the flesh very hard and thick.
With a diagnosis in hand, Mom is learning to accept her child.
