When I saw this picture one word came to my mind >>> Hydrocephalus. It is one of the commonest causes of Big-head in a growing child. It is an uncommon condition where there is an accumulation of Cerebrospinal fluid in the brain.

Sometimes the head could grow so big that it looks like a monstrous figure. I have seen quite a lot of these helpless children. The good news is that there is treatment that would get the child to live like other children…

Parents must not abandon them or treat them like outcasts or ‘juju’ personified children. It is neither a curse nor the wrath of the Gods… It is a condition that modern day medicine and surgery can take care of.
