Photos: Deformed child born with leg facing opposite direction

A baby has been born with back to front legs and no buttocks due to a condition only five people in the UK have.


Baby Baron was born last month to Tracy Fletcher, 39, and her partner Edward. Tracy was told her baby would be severely handicapped when she went for her 20-week scan but she and her partner decided to go ahead and have the baby.

Baron was born without buttocks and with clubbed feet and has no control over the lower half of his spine, hips, bladder or bowels. He has been diagnosed with caudal regression syndrome (CRS).
