Amritsar Woman Gives Birth To Plastic Baby

Published on 11 May, 2015 at 3:06 pm By

You won’t believe it, but it’s true. A woman hailing from Amritsar (Punjab) gave birth to a ‘plastic baby’.  The birth of such babies is rare and occurs once among six lakh newborns, reports India Today.

The plastic baby looks like a rubber doll and sheds skin like that of reptile scales. A doctor who attended to the plastic baby, said:

“The baby starts crying when someone touches her. She looks like a rubber doll and her face appears to be similar to that of a fish. Her eyes and lips are red hot. She is also not able to take feed from her mother.”

 

Also known as Collodion babies, they are often premature. They are born encased in a skin that resembles a yellow, tight and shiny film or dried collodion (sausage skin). Dr R.S. Bedi, Director, Bedi Hospitals, said:



“This is a very rare disease and is kind of a genetic disorder. This is a kind of wax and shining skin which is also tight. At times, the plastic babies report hypothermia and dehydration besides other problems. I treated one such baby a decade ago. The skin at times sheds itself within two to three weeks but the period is very painful for the baby which cannot close its eyelids.”

 

This is the second such baby born in Amritsar. Earlier in 2014, a plastic baby was born in the Civil Hospital but died within three days of birth.
