Meet the boy born with 2 percent of brain, check out his recent pictures

The fact that Noah lived was baffling enough, but his parents were even more shocked at his first post-birth scan, when they found out Noah had only had two per cent of his brain. Noah was able to eat, breathe and drink because his brain stem was intact, says Dr.

Doctors told the parents that their son would be severely mentally disabled — unable to talk, see, hear or eat. Then they also discovered that Noah had spina bifida and gave him very little chance of surviving. But the 6-year-old can do all of those things. Noah was born 11/11 at 11 o'clock.

There is no cure or standard treatment for anencephaly and the prognosis for people is death. Most anencephalic fetuses do not survive birth, accounting for 55% of non-aborted cases. Infants that are not stillborn will usually die within a few hours or days after birth from cardiorespiratory arrest.

A baby has been born in Indonesia with two faces because his conjoined twin did not develop properly in the womb. ... The unfortunate infant also has a condition called hydrocephalus, which is caused by a build-up of fluid in the brain.
