Rare and deadly.. A young Brazilian woman suffers from the continuous growth of her head

Grazielli Alves Regis was bedridden and unable to speak for years and recently lost his sight due to the growth of his head.

Her ordeal began even before she was born, when she developed hydrocephalus, an abnormal buildup of fluid around the brain.

The resulting pressure can damage internal tissues and distort the shape of the skull. It can also be fatal if the pressure damages the parts of the brain responsible for heart and lung function.

Regis’ mother constantly cares for her daughter, ensuring that she is ready to give her love for many years to come.

The mum said she first knew something was wrong when she was eight months pregnant and felt severe pain in her womb.

An ultrasound performed by doctors revealed that her unborn daughter had hydrocephalus, which affects around one in every 500 babies.

Doctors estimated that her baby girl would only live for three months, given the scale of the case.

When she was born, she was nicknamed the “Giant Baby” due to the size of her head, which grew bigger over the years.

If left untreated, hydrocephalus kills around 50% of children before the age of three, and only one in five survives into adulthood.
