Doctors Stunned To Learn Why Newborn Baby Was Born With Head Full Of Grey Hair

A new Mom in Hungary has given birth to a beautiful baby boy with a head full of extraordinary hair.

At the end of 2015, a baby boy named Bence was born in a hospital under normal circumstances. He was quick in his arrival, as expected, and with not many surprises throughout the labor. But it wasn’t long before the doctor noticed that he was not a typical baby, Daily News in Hungary reported.

At the end of 2015, a baby boy named Bence was born in a hospital under normal circumstances. He was prompt in his arrival, as expected, and with little surprises throughout labor. But it wasn’t long before his doctor noticed he was not a typical baby, Daily News Hungary reports.

It was not baby Bence’s weight that shocked the doctors. It wasn’t the fact that the baby boy was born at a slightly above average weight of nearly 12 pounds — nor did his ordinary height of 21 inches surprise anyone.

It was the prominent white hair which covered his tiny head that makes him different from every other baby.

His magnificent white hair had earned him the nickname “Prince Charming” in the nursing ward.

His doctor, Dr. Zoltan Kummer, believes that the unique head of icy hair is not a sign of illness, nor is it a symptom of prenatal stress as some would think.

He took into consideration that it could possibly be albinism, a genetic mutation affecting skin, hair and eye color.According to the Mayo Clinic: “Albinism includes a group of inherited disorders that are characterized by little or no production of the pigment melanin. The type and amount of melanin your body produces determines the color of your skin, hair and eyes.”

In the end, Bence’s doctor concluded that while melanin pigment may be missing in the baby’s hair, there is no sign of any other shortage of pigment on the boy’s body that would determine the cause of his white hair to be albinism.

The newborn baby’s extraordinary hair, while earning him great attention among his nurses, is expected to get darker as he grows up. Kummer presumes that the situation is isolated in the area and is likely a temporary pigment shortage.

Following his emergence into this bright and new world, the adorable Prince Charming underwent a series of routine tests, which all came out as normal. To be certain that there are no other causes to the pigment deficiency, AmoMama reported that doctors in Romania are conducting additional tests from blood work drawn at the hospital in Hungary.

All in all, the healthy baby boy is expected to return to a typical newborn routine.

Bence’s mother seemed to be under great stress following the labor, with no time to relax, due to the fact that a college exam was coming up. The woman is not only a student and a mother, but also stated that she works, too.
