On March 4, 2015, a completely unusual boy Timothy Eli Thompson was born in Alabama, USA, who had a completely missing nose.
Due to a rare genetic disease — nasal bone aplasia, or nasal infertility, which occurs in one of almost 200 million newborns, Eli is deprived of sinuses and septum.
The baby had a tracheotomy, which made breathing easier, but during crying he is practically not heard, which is why his 23-year-old mother Brandy is forced to constantly monitor her son.
Brandy admits that she expected to see a completely healthy baby, since no abnormalities were found during the ultrasound. However, Eli charmed Mom so much that she fell in love with him at first sight.
A page was created for the baby in a social network where Brandy tells how her child’s treatment is progressing. Parents have learned to take care of Eli without the help of doctors and say that they will not have plastic surgery yet.
They will give the right to resolve this issue to Eli himself when he grows up. Eli Thompson, who attracted the attention of the world’s media after being born without a nose, died on March 4, 2017 at the age of two.
