BABY BORN IN GILGIT RESEMBLES LIKE TIGER


A child with a very rare genetic skin disorder Harlequin-type ichthyoids was born in Gilgit Pakistan Friday night that brought dozens of people to the hospital to catch a glimpse of the child.
According to details, the child has red stripes all over the body and his hands are different than normal human babies. Eyelids of the baby are also severely averted, which leaves the eyes and the area around them very susceptible to trauma whereas the lips are pulled by the dry skin.
According to Dr Iftikhar, a pediatrician, the child is suffering from a rare skin disease Harlequin-type ichthyosis due to which the body looks like a tiger. He said that continuous cousin marriages may result in such cases.
In Pakistan, four such cases have been reported so far and all four died soon after the birth.
In the past, the disorder was invariably fatal, whether due to dehydration, infection (sepsis), restricted breathing due to the plating, or other related causes. The most common cause of death was systemic infection and sufferers rarely survived for more than a few days. However, there have been improvements in care due to modern medical practices.
The oldest known survivor is 24-year old Nusrit Nelly Shaheen. Most sufferers die when they are babies.
