Reading Time: < 1 minute

Umaru Shehu hospital, Maiduguri, Borno State was thrown into pandemonium on Monday 16th July, after a young lady was delivered of a baby boy with alien looks.

It was garnered that the looks was a result of a genetic skin disorder known as Harlequin-type ichthyosis.

Harlequin-type ichthyosis is a genetic disorder which results in thickened skin over nearly the entire body at birth. The skin forms large, diamond-shaped plates that are separated by deep cracks.

The newborn who looked like he was wearing a mask, was also said to be secreting some thick fluid through the cracked area of his skin.

Everyone fled upon seeing the baby. Even his shocked young mother took to her heels. The fate of the baby is unknown for now.
