A Hermaphrodite Condition
An infant born to a 19-year-old Thai woman with familial history of diabetes mellitus, which showed evidence of diabetic fetopathy with classic facial malformation and ambiguous genitalia. Although maternal diabetes is known to increase the risk of congenital malformations, this is the first reported case of ambiguous genitalia.
The infant died shortly after birth; the autopsy showed multiple facial anomalies including a prominent forehead, an absent nose, absent bilateral ears and a median cleft lip and palate. The most unusual finding was bilateral adrenal hyperplasia with ambiguous external genitalia, with clitoral hypertrophy and hyperpigmentation. Other anomalies found included preaxial polydactyly of the right hand, accessory spleens and a single umbilical artery.
"This screenshot from the trailer shows how it's all crooked and dislocated but there are a few other scenes where it seriously looks disgusting where it's obvious his finger should not be sitting the way it is; literally dangling at a very odd angle from the rest of his hand. It is so gross...."
