A baby girl was born with "Permanent Smile" due To rare condition

Kristina Vercher and her husband, Blaise Mucha, shared on Tik Tok their unique experience with their daughter who has a "perpetual smile", to raise awareness and spread information about this rare condition.

In details, the baby, Ayla Summer, was born in December 2021 in Adelaide, South Australia, with a very rare congenital condition called “double macrostomia”, in which the corners of the mouth do not fuse together properly while the child is in the womb. After they performed a caesarean section, doctors handed Ayla to her parents and noticed she had a large labial opening, which initially baffled medical staff because the condition was not detected in an ultrasound.

For their part, doctors have indicated that children with "bi-macrostomia" can suffer from the implementation of some functional tasks, such as feeding.

According to a 2007 study, only 14 cases of "Dual macrostomia" were reported in medical records.
