Baby Uno: The Back Story
On the 27 April 2020, a little boy was born in Mynamar to parents of Karen descent. Baby Uno was born without an anus and his bowel and bladder functionality was not correct. He was missing one of his kidneys and his heart is on the right side of his chest and has a hole in the two upper chambers. This causes his blood to pump incorrectly.
These multiple medical issues diagnosed as VACTERL Association Syndrome. This syndrome is a birth defect that effects different systems of the body, including the kidneys and heart, intestine, spine and malformations in the anal canal. The outlook for babies born with VACTERL can be good if they can have the necessary surgeries to ensure normal body development and functionality.
