ANENCEPHALY Eugene t. period 5

Anencephaly is the mutation of being born without a skull or a malformed skull.

This baby has anencephaly yet is still living, why?

Although the mutation is gruesome, some babies do survive for a little while but their heads have to be super protected and the parents have to be careful. They can live because there brain is still there but there will be mental disabilities.

This was the longest a baby survived anencephaly, Nicholas was three years old before he died.

Anencephaly can be prevented (when pregnant) by avoiding hot tubs or saunas, any seizure medication, and try not to have a fever or be sick.
