ABCNEWS: Baby born without skin

(WTVM) - ABC News reports a baby was born without skin. Baby Brody Curtis, 1-month, was born with Bart's syndrome and has very fragile skin that can easily erode.

His mother told ABC News when he was born doctors could almost see his brain.

Bandages cover much of Brody's body from his elbows to his arms and from his knees to his feet. And well as around his skull.

The Curtises say in order to prevent life-threatening infection, they have to change out his bandages each day and dress his skin with a salve.

The condition occurs in 1 in 20,000 births. Even minor injuries can result in a blister.

For more on Brody and his condition see more of this report.
