This is a very unbelievable video that came out of Saudi Arabia. I felt it was such a disturbing and shocking story and video that I decided to share it here. It is primarily meant to educate the masses of such conditions that affect the human race and is primarily meant to be educational. Also, it is meant for us to give thanks to God for our health and family as anyone who is unfortunate to have a child born with this condition deserves our complete sympathy and prayers. Be advised that this video is not for the faint of heart.
Although 2 years old, this incident actually happened at Mecca, Saudi Arabia, as this is a true story.
This unfortunate mom had already had several daughters, and when diagnosed with this latest pregnancy, the doctor had found out that this was also a girl, the mother was very disappointed as she wanted to have a boy instead of another girl. So whenever people asked her baby's gender, she supposedly replied that it was a baby snake. Whether that part of the story is true or not, as the day had come to give birth, her baby was born with a reptile like condition known as harlequin disorder. This condition is a skin disease that gives the sufferer massive diamond shaped scales all over the body. Because the skin is cracked where normal skin would fold, it is easily peneterated by bacteria and other contaminants, resulting in serious risk and or a fatal infection.
It is an unfortunate condition and one I wanted to share with readers here as I myself was both horrified and amazed that this sort of condition exists in the human race. May God bless this baby and all other sufferers of this and other serious conditions. Here's a wiki entry to explain the disorder: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harlequin_t
