There was confusion, on Monday, at the Umaru Shehu hospital, Maiduguri, Borno State, after a baby boy was born with Harlequin-type ichthyosis.

Harlequin-type ichthyosis is a genetic disorder which results in thickened skin over nearly the entire body at birth. The skin forms large, diamond-shaped plates that are separated by deep cracks.

Everyone fled upon seeing the baby. Even his shocked young mother took to her heels. The fate of the baby is unknown for now.
