Miracle Baby Born WITHOUT A NOSE!

Congenital Arrhinia


Known as “Congenital Arrhinia,” Tessa was born not just without a nose, but without all of the brain functions associated with the appendage. This includes not just the capacity to detect scent and smells, but also the sections of the brain where memory and scent overlap. It is an extraordinary defect that both scientists and doctors don’t totally understand, and it is not linked to any known genetic traits. While rare, it could potentially afflict any baby.
