Brit mum discovers baby's serious condition through Facebook stranger
Melbourne, May 9 (ANI): A stranger on Facebook alerted a British mother that her son had a rare condition that could leave him brain-damaged.
Aghast, Charlotte Dent, from Liverpool, discovered her six-month-old son George had trigonocephaly - which without an operation can lead to blindness, severe learning difficulties and even death, the Liverpool Echo reported.
Doctors had failed to spot the condition and it was only after a woman whose son also suffers from the same condition saw Dent's profile picture on the social network site that George was taken into medical care immediately.
"My son is six months old, and I found out that he has something quite rare. All the doctors I've been to see and even the health visitors haven't picked up on this. It was a mum whose son has the same thing. If she hadn't got in touch, he could have ended up severely brain-damaged....," News.com.au quoted Dent as telling the newspaper.
After George was born, the 22-year-old noticed he had a misshapen head, but the baby boy was given the all-clear by doctors and discharged.
But after the stranger saw her holding her son on her Facebook profile and alerted her to the danger, George was diagnosed with trigonocephaly the same day. (ANI)
