Cairo - An Egyptian baby has been given only a few days to survive after he was born with only one eye on his forehead.
It is believed his mom was exposed to radiation during her pregnancy.
The Daily Mail reports that the baby is suffering from cyclopia, a condition that normally results in death shortly after birth.
The infant has no nose as his eye sockets were not properly developed while in the womb.
