See “Mask Face” Baby Boy Born In China ,Full Video

Kang Kang, the 15-month-old baby from China’s Hunan province was born with a very rear disorder as he was born with a mask, literally.

Doctors in China are not sure what caused Kang Kang to be born with such disfigurement but say that it could have occurred due to a disease or maybe even a medication that the mother took during or before pregnancy.

Professor Wang Duquan who is set to operate on the 15-month-old baby has said that the “deformity is so rare that it is difficult to pinpoint the exact cause.”

Wang continued “It’s different from a cleft lip or cleft palate; it’s a facial cleft. Not only his face muscles are cleft, but the inside bones are cleft.”

Kang Kang was born with a congenital deformity, a condition called transverse facial cleft, also known as “face horizontal cleft”.

The mother of Kang Kang, Yi Xilian said that her pregnancy was normal and according to all the test and ultrasounds made during her pregnancy, did not show any sign of problems with her baby.

Kang Kang was born in March 2009 at a hospital in Changsha, Hunan province but doctors new there was a problem only after the baby was born. He now is treated at the People’s Liberation Army’s Military No. 163 Hospital only after his family accumulated enough money for the expensive correction facial surgeries.

Yi told media that she “took Kang Kang to a bigger hospital in Changsha 20 days after his birth” where doctors told her that it would cost between $80,000 and $100,000.

Doctors who have seen Kang Kang have said that the baby is a completely normal child other then is facial deformity where it looks as though he is wearing a mask.

All the best to you Kangkang!!!
