Mother Gives Birth to a Newborn Baby without a Nose

When a baby is in the womb, and when the doctor’s take an ultrasound, certain deformities are unable to be noticed because an ultra sound tends to pick up only skeletal and bone structure, and not tissue.

That is why Brandi McGlathery and Troy Thompson were shocked when their baby was delivered and born without a nose.

McGlathery told, “I pulled back and said, ‘Something’s wrong!’ And the doctor said, ‘No, he’s perfectly fine.’ Then I shouted, ‘He doesn’t have a nose!’”

While the family and doctors were celebrating the birth of newborn Eli Thompson, no one, but the child’s mother noticed that something was wrong with her new son. She noticed that her son started to breath out of her nose as soon as he needed to,  stating, that the child’s lack of nose “didn’t faze him at all.”


When looking at a 3-D ultrasound the couple commented on their baby’s cute nose, and did not expect such a rare occurrence. This form of deformity is called congenital arhinia, and chances of being born with it are 197 million to one, and while Eli face may be missing a traditional nose, he was also born without a nasal cavity and or olfactory system.

Eli went through a tracheotomy five days after he was born, but appears to be healthy and fine. The family will take the child home soon, and will then go meet with craniofacial specialists to make sure he maintains his health; the family also stated that they will wait until Eli is older to see facial surgery options.

“We’re going to do our best to make sure he’s happy. The rest of him is so cute, sometimes you don’t realize he doesn’t have a nose,” states McGlathery.
