  •  Harlequin disorder? (1+ / 0-)

    I recall reading about a teenager who actually managed to live past childhood with that - he was pink, he was not permitted to go into the sun without SP 70 on, and he had to apply lotion to his skin many times a day to prevent it from cracking open and getting infected.  As an infant, he too was expected to die within a few weeks, but he surprised doctors by living on, and his parents decided not to give up on him. One very lucky kid.  

    Keep your religion out of my government.

      about three British children, same family, with harlequin.  Fairly recently.  The woman who related her experience did name it, but that was 40 years ago.  The parents never came to see him and when he died, his grandmother brought a suit for him to be buried in.

      Those who forget the pasta are doomed to reheat it.
