A Baby Born With White Hair
Majority of us only worry about problems like saggy skin, wrinkled faces or grey hair when we reach a very old age. Baby Bence has a very different case. This baby, from Székesfehérvár, Hungary, was born with a head covered with white/grey hair.
Is This Abnormal Or Not?
Bence was born rather normal at 21 inches and 12 pounds. When newborns come out with a full set of hair, it is very shocking but a baby with a full set of grey hair takes the crown as the most bizarre.
Is There Any Reasonable Explanation For This?
Doctors had confirmed that this baby was indeed healthy in all other aspects of any other baby should be. But was his hair caused by albinism? It was indeed confusing for the experts…
Is It The Levels Of Melanin?
One of the most convincing explanations would be the melanin level of the baby. It would appear that the color of his hair was due to low levels of melanin. The doctors wanted to make sure so they decided to run a blood test.
It Affects Only In His Hair
Dr. Zoltan Kummer made a confirmation that baby Bence was indeed low on melanin. But then, why did this affect just his hair and not his skin? This newborn’s immune system and other health concerns showed no signs of issues at all. It was his strange hair.
It Could Be Just Prenatal Stress
Was the color of his hair symptoms that he had prenatal stress or is he suffering from some type of illness? Many infants are prone to problems light birth weight or premature birth if they experience stress in the womb.
