One-Eyed Baby Born in Iraq, Photos Getting Viral:
The hospital staff in Iraq was taken by surprise when a human child with a single eye was born. According to foreign media reports, the unusual one-eyed baby was delivered in a hospital located in Iraq’s Dhi Qar area, but unfortunately, the child passed away shortly after birth. The image of the child has been widely shared on social media, revealing that the child’s face featured only one eye instead of the usual two in the middle.
Medical professionals state that the occurrence of a child being born with only one eye is rare and can be attributed to factors such as a lack of genetic compatibility between the parents or the presence of an infection in the mother’s womb during pregnancy. Additionally, a decrease in brain tissue development in the child could also contribute to such an abnormal birth.
Records indicate that the first documented case of a similar nature dates back to 1665, wherein a child with one eye was born. Since then, only seven cases of this kind have been reported worldwide.
