Harlequin baby

This is not an alien , this a real baby. Maybe she doesnt look very familiar or typical but she's still a human baby. If I'm not in this medical field , the 1st thing that would come into my head when I see this kind of baby would be -" What the heck the parent did ! " or "the parent might be a devil" or some ppl would go to the "bomoh"

and then the bomoh would say

" .....ni , kamu ade cari pasal ngan ofismate kamu ni, lepas tu die ade buat-buat, tanam tangkal tulang jari kelingking perempuan mati mengandung anak ke 12 belakang rumah mase bini awak mengandung , pakcik boleh ubat ni - pengeras RM5000 dan pakcik kene tido ngan bini kamu tu.... "

I said -> Bullshit!

the real truth is , this is a congenital disease known as the Harlequin ichthyosis or Ichthyosis fetalis

This disease is caused by chronic hyperkeratosis. " dalam bahasa melayu, hyperkeratosis = kulit tebal berkerak / besisik " and for this disease, it'll be "diamond shape" scale.

The caused of this disease is believed to be the genetic disorder - meaning if it's gonna happen to u... it might just. No prevention and technically it could happen to anyone.

So far, less than 100 cases of this disease been reported and it's a very rare disease. The prognosis is very bad - most of these babies died during birth and even if they made it thru the labour room - they would be dead due to the infection. The spaces between the scales are easily infected.

If u want to see this baby alive, u could go and search for "harliquin ichthyosis" at the youtube.com

:) just a piece of medical info for all my readers. One more thing , not that I hate or really loath all the bomohs :P , I just think - if u want to look for alternative treatment , go to the "ustaz or pak imam"

Oh my god... terkejut aku tengok pic ni... nasib you explain... kesian gak ngan baby baby yang kena penyakit ni..

if you want to seek alternative treatment... kalau kat Malaysia.. better seek help from DARUSSYIFA... gerenti tak perlu was was... dorang semua ni kebanyakannya anak didik Ustaz Haron Din... berpengkalan kat bangi...

Memang kesian baby tu.Yang paling kesian tentu ibu yang melahirkan kerana dialah yang menanggung pedih melihat keaadaan sebegitu.

AzAzura said...

I never heard or seen such condition.thanks for sharing.speaking of bomoh, up until today masih lagi ada orang yang advice untuk I stop makan ubat dan buat rawatan bomoh .. gosh.. sometimes it hurts me when people who aren't qualify medical practitioner start mengajar i yang tengah suffering ni.
