    Poor baby. I'm sure plastic surgery can fix that.

    I think he's cute as heck. Him having no nose is actually amost completely adorable.
    My heart just hurts for him because let's face it kids can be cruel and when he's like 3 or 4 others his age will have a lot of questions. But I'm optimistic that plastic surgery in some way can fix this even if he doesn't have a sinus passage he can still get a nose.
    Other than that though how freaking cute is he!?!?!?!?!

    The mom took Zofran throughout her pregnancy. Zofran is a pregnancy approved drug (manufactured mainly for cancer patients) given to treat nausea.
    There are lawyers contacting women who took it and had babies w birth defects, as there was a batch confirmed to cause them. I think this may be a birth defect caused by Zofran...but no idea JMO

    Adorably-sweet video, as well as additional information on the condition at the link below:

    "Congenital arhinia can make it hard for babies to breathe and feed; however, there have been cases in which people with the condition live into adulthood. Eli doesn’t have a nasal cavity of olfactory system either."

    "However, they don’t expect to put him through any reconstructive surgeries until he’s well into puberty — the condition also affects his pituitary gland, which synthesizes and secretes many of the hormones involved with puberty."

    And a FB page for Eli:

    Snipped from the article you posted: "And the doctor said, ‘No, he’s perfectly fine.’ Then I shouted, ‘He doesn’t have a nose!’” Brandi McGlathery told Al.com. It was a shock for both her and her husband Troy Thompson, as well as the doctor who placed Eli on her chest"

    What kind of Doctor does not notice that the baby he just delivered does not have a nose!!
