This Baby Was Born with Two Noses as a Result of an Rare Genetic Condition

168

A Peruvian boy was born with two noses instead of one, a deformity caused by a genetic condition called Patau syndrome, which happens once in every 10,000 to 15,000 births. The baby named Baby Angelito [little angel] by his parents has made international headlines, but the most important thing right now is that he gets medical care. Angelito is in a hospital where he will need to undergo an operation to treat his malformation and give him a normal nose. His mom and dad are always by his side. Even though the baby has no trouble breathing right now, he still needs plastic surgery as soon as possible.
