  1. ***I THINK YOU MEANT ANENCEPHALY***

    Harlequin Ichthyosis is when they’re born with thick skin that depending on severity can rip/tear and bleed all over their bodies. Less severe and more survivable cases are where the child can live with just irritatingly dry/cracked skin and unfortunately very unsttractive.

  2. Anencephaly is a condition that prevents the normal development of the brain and the bones of the skull. It’s classed as a neural tube defect. Babies with this condition normally die inutero or soon after birth. This baby appears to be thriving despite suffering from Anencephaly.

  3. I would say Anencephaly as well and as large birth weight is assiociated with this disorder I will say only a few days old.
    Will most likely die in a few days as these babies rarly suckle and in this case an infection will come about from the open skull

    BTW the Daily mirror sends its regards

  4. Anacephaly is more llike it. He doesn’t appear to have the trademark rough patches of of scaly skin on his body. You were right the first time. I have medical background and through my experience, this baby won’t live too long. Sad…
