Patient Comments: Birth Defects - Personal Experience

What type of birth defect did you or your child have? Please share your experience.

Comment from: Andy, 0-2 Male (Caregiver) Published: May 13

I am trying to find out what my son was born with. He has an area on his head that is sunken and the size of a quarter. Hair does not grow there. Sometime it bothers him. So far, no doctor has an explanation what this is. I was wondering if there is a website with lots of pictures of children's head issues.
