Mermaid Baby Born In Rawalpindi Dies

The hospital’s sources claim that the infant was pronounced dead shortly after birth, which is consistent with the fact that newborns born with the condition rarely survive.

At the Rawalpindi Institute of Cardiology on Saturday, a baby was delivered with the condition known as sirenomelia, commonly known as mermaid syndrome. The infant had a tail-like limb and a skull that was bigger than the average size.

The mother, named Hussan Ara and who lives in Narowal, was taken to the hospital in order to give birth there. Due to the fact that she has cardiac difficulties, she is still receiving treatment at the hospital, even though she recently gave birth to a kid.

The hospital’s sources claim that the infant was pronounced dead shortly after birth, which is consistent with the fact that newborns born with the condition rarely survive.

In addition, they stated that the baby’s head was significantly bigger than average and that she had two arms and a limb that resembled a tail tied to her abdomen.

The condition known as sirenomelia is characterised by the fusion of the legs at birth. This gives the patient the appearance of having a mermaid’s tail, which is how the condition got its name.

The syndrome is an extremely rare illness that affects between 0.8 and 1 kid out of every 100,000 live births, according to healthline.com. This disease occurs in male infants three times more frequently than it does in female infants.

According to the National Organization for Rare Disorders, medical professionals are unsure of the precise elements that lead to mermaid syndrome; they believe it is most likely the result of a convergence of environmental and genetic influences.

The majority of instances are referred to by physicians as “sporadic,” which shows that there is no clear cause for their occurrence. These factors frequently result in reduced blood flow inside the embryo, particularly in the area that would normally be responsible for the development of the lower limbs.
