Baby Born With Congenital Malformation Dies In Makurdi by ologboncrowny(m): 4:01pm On Oct 18, 2013
MakurdiA – baby born in Makurdi on Thursday with four ear lobes and no genitals has died, a hospital official said.

The baby was delivered by Mrs Mbanengen Emmanuel at about 5:30 p.m at Yima Hospital, located in International Market area, a suburb of Makurdi in Benue.

The Chief Medical Director of the hospital, Dr. John Dzike, on Friday said that the baby died “few hours after delivery”.

Dzike said the baby also had its intestines exposed at the lower part of the abdomen.

According to him, it is the second time a baby with such type of complications was delivered at the hospital this year.

He explained that the defect was caused by malformation during pregnancy.

“This is a case of congenital malformation. Some women use un-prescribed drugs during pregnancy, that is why it is very important to attend ante-natal clinics, especially in the first 12 weeks.

“Diseases like virus, chicken pox, and mumps which are viral, can cause congenital malformation,” Dzike explained.

He advised pregnant women to always attend ante-natal clinics and avoid self medication.

Efforts to speak with the mother of the baby proved abortive as she declined comment. (NAN)

I know that HIV is prevalent in this part of the country undecided.
Praying that this will be the last of such case...

2nd case in the hospital in recent time ? this issue should be thoroughly investigated as there may be a drug these mothers take that might be harmful to the fetus

4get d doctors, in d days of our mothers we hardly hear stufs like dis. i no of some girls who had ther babies witout eva usin doctors prescriptn. I friend of mine put 2 bed earlier dis year bt she lost d baby cos d kidneys were nt properly formd n dis is sombody dat atended anti-natal frm day 1. D tin is times av changed. We r exposed to many poisons tru foods, drinks, air, radiations n even drugs. Wat we really nid is 2 watch our lifestyle n employ d use of natural food supplements such as zinc, calcium, spirulina n pure garlic oil.

the whole idea of western education being evil is not only proclaimed by the hausa's, It's everywhere, It's just that It's mostly heard about in the some part.
