One Eyed Child September 9, 2006Posted by rajAT in blogcamp, blogcampindia, indiablogcamp, one eyed child.
The mother of a one-eyed child born in Chennai, India, in early August might have been given an experimental anti-cancer drug, according to an internal hospital report seen by Wired News. However, the report does not say how or why the mother might have been given the drug. The birth defect could have any number of causes, including a rare, but natural, chromosomal disorder.
This one-eyed child was born in early August at the Kasturba Gandhi Hospital for Women and Children in Chennai, India. The baby girl, diagnosed with a rare chromosomal disorder known as cyclopia, was born with a single eye in the center of her forehead, no nose and her brain fused into a single hemisphere.
Scott is digging more into the news and is trying to find out that an experimental anti-cancer drug was given to the child. Hospital has destroyed the medical records of the drugs administered to the mother.
Life is so cheap in India, isn’t it.
