Admit it - you're shocked by the above image (and you'll be further shocked by the other images you'll be seeing on this page). And with good reason. Few congenital birth defects are as disturbing to the eyes (and souls) of its witnesses than Harlequin Ichthyosis - commonly known as Harlequin Fetus. In this rare genetic disorder, which occurs in 1 in 300,000 births, babies are born with a massive horny shell of dense platelike scales and contraction abnormalities of the eyes, ears, mouth and appendages. Basically, wherever a fold would normally occur in a newborn baby, these poor souls have cracks.


You've probably noticed the absolutely horrendous condition of the eyes of the above left infant. In Harlequin Fetuses, the free edges of the upper and lower eyelids are everted, leaving the eyes at risk for desiccation and trauma. The term "harlequin" derives from the newborn's facial expression and the triangular and diamond-shaped pattern of hyperkeratosis. The newborn?s mouth is pulled wide open, mimicking a clown?s smile. The underlying biochemical and genetic abnormality is not understood.






I'm not putting the images here. They really aren't that bad, they don't even look that human to me, really. Check 'em out.

Wow. I don't know what I'd do if my child was born that way. How horrible.

It's pretty crazy, isn't it? I found out about this a while ago whilst browsing through my step-dad's old medical textbooks. They usually only live a couple of days, mostly because of infections....

First one I've heard of. It usually is fatal, though. Glad to hear they may have found a way to treat this.... :thumbup:

1. I doubt he will ever get laid, so there is nothing to worry about in regards to evolution.

2. He is a tri-athlete...I'll bet he could whoop you.

This guy is a black belt. Look at that karate stance. He is ready to bring the pain.

I guess I missed that part. :shrug:

He must have not had it as bad as those babies shown in those pictures. There's no way those children could've survived.
