Baby gets avoided by neighbors because of appearance

This poor baby is being shunned by people because of his illness.

A baby who has a giant head has been branded as a "ghost baby" by their neighbors. He had a condition wherein his head swelled to a surprising 96 cm.

Fortunately, doctors have successfully operated on the seven-month-old baby boy and have reduced his head into 70 cm.

Mrityunjay was diagnosed with hydrocephalus which is a condition that occurs when fluid builds up in the skull and causes the brain to swell.


"The child was admitted on November 20 with the head containing almost 5.5 liters of fluid," Dr Dilip Parida, superintendent of the AIIMS hospital at Bhuwaneshwar, said.

"We have removed 3.7 liters of fluid so far by external ventricular drainage.

"Now, the circumference of the head has come down from 96cm to 70cm. The cognitive functions of the child have improved a lot, he is stable and has responded well to the treatment," he added.


Mrityunjay's parents' Kamalesh Das and Kavita said their family had been rejected by neighbours since the boy's birth.

"People would call our baby a "ghost" because of his unusual appearance," Kamalesh, 35 years old said.

They are hoping that once their son's head is fully treated, their neighbors would stop being indifferent to them.
