25 Diseases You Wouldn’t Like To Have

#23 – Microcephaly

Microcephaly is an extremely rare infant condition and it is visible and diagnosed immediately after a child’s birth. This condition is so rare that it occurs in one of every 666,666 births. If a baby is diagnosed with Microcephaly, every doctor knows that the baby’s brain won’t be able to develop into a normal brain, ever.

Doctors nowadays believe that Microcephaly is caused by a pregnant mother’s exposure to harmful things such as radiation. Babies with Microcephaly can grow up to the size of an average human being, but their head will remain the same and those babies will have severe mental problems and dysfunctions.
