In Kathihar, Bihar, India, a baby boy was born with top of his head missing. According to the information I got, the condition is caused by the genetic disorder we’ve seen on Best Gore before, although harlequin ichthyosis is typically associated with scaly skin. The condition looks closer to anencephaly than harlequin ichthyosis to me, but I’m not an expert so what do I know?
The baby’s mother, 35 year old Khalida Begum, reportedly asked midwives to take it away, refused to breastfeed the child and called him an “alien”.
