Meet 2-yr-old boy whose enormous face growth disease can't be diagnosed

New York, Sat, 06 Jul 2013 ANI

New York, July 6 (ANI): Doctors have failed to identify the rare genetic condition in a 2-year-old toddler, who was born with a severe facial deformity, suffers regular seizures, and is unable to walk, talk or eat solid food.

Aidan Jackowiak Smith of Newcastle, England, was thought to have Proteus Syndrome-which afflicted 'Elephant Man' John Merrick-but doctors now think he may have Cloves syndrome, the New York Daily News reported.

No one can figure out what's causing his condition.

Aidan was born prematurely with a growth on his face, back and leg and began experiencing seizures at three weeks old.

Parents Vikki and Karl were told he had suffered brain damage.

Years later, they are still trying to get him a diagnosis. (ANI)
