‘Cyclops’ Baby Born With One Eye After Radiation Exposure.. Heartbreaking!

Heartbreaking pictures of a newborn baby suffering from the rare physical disorder ‘Cyclops’, with one eye in the middle of his forehead were released from a private hospital in El Senbellawein in Egypt. This medical condition is the result of exposure of the mother to radiations during pregnancy. Cyclops is a pretty unusual disorder named after the one-eyed giants of Greek mythology and is caused by radiation exposure of the foetus in the womb.

According to slaati, the doctors think the deformity could either be the result of a combination of medicines taken by the mother which went wrong or from exposure to radiation.

This medical disorder may occur as often as four times in 1,000 births, but in most of the cases, the pregnancy does not go through the full term. Cyclops is more common in case of animals.

Dr Ahmed Badruddin, the chief doctor supervising the baby's condition at the private hospital said that the infant won't be able to survive for more than a few days.
