Mothers, how would you feel if your baby looked different from everyone else? Will you still take him as your own or will you shun him away? Good mothers, of course, would go with the first option. Besides, your baby is YOUR baby and your duty as a parent doesn’t suddenly change if your child just because he isn’t normal.
Unfortunately,a mother from Kathihar in Bihar, India initially didn’t feel that way. After giving birth to an infant, Khalida Begum immediately ordered the midwives to remove the baby from her sight.
The newborn baby was called an ‘alien’ by some locals because of his strange appearance.
The 35-year-old mother was ‘shocked’ when she saw that her child had a tiny head and bulging eyes.
It turns out, however, that the baby was born with an extremely rare genetic condition. Indian doctors gave a provisional diagnosis that the boy’s physical deformities are because he has Harlequin Ichthyosis.
According to The Ichthyosis Support Group, Harlequin Ichthyosis “is extremely rare, and comes out of the blue” and that the condition “causes the skin to grow seven times faster than normal” with the skin splitting at “several areas causing deep cracks.”
As if that wasn’t bad enough, symptoms are also pointing to another serious health defect called Anencephaly.
As of this writing, the poor baby has yet to be named.
In an interview with the local reporters, Khalida Begum said:
“Several body parts of the baby is not completely developed. When I saw the baby after delivery for the first time, I was completely shocked to see the alien-looking boy.
“I couldn’t believe that I had a delivered an alien-like boy. I was so shocked and saddened by this that I asked the midwife to take the baby out of my sight.”
Fortunately, the mother came to her senses after several hours and started to nurse the infant.
People from their village have since been visiting their house, believing that the baby is an incarnation of Hanuman, a Hindu monkey God.
