birthmark

This mother was shocked when she saw her newborn was covered in dark, bloody spots.

A special boy

When Dylan Little was born four years ago, his mother Kara and the medical staff were bewildered: Dylan's entire back was covered with a massive dark mark. His legs and arms were also covered with sizeable birthmarks. The neonatal ICU quickly discovered that Dylan had been born with a rare skin disorder called congenital melanocytic nevus.

Warning: Some people may find the following images disturbing.

"When Dylan was born, over 80% of his body was covered in birthmarks—his back was completely black and bloody; his face, his arms and legs all covered in moles," said his mother Kara.

Less severe forms of this disorder cause small moles or birthmarks, but fewer  that 500,000 people have been born with such a dramatic  case. More than 80% of his entire body was covered in spots!

Dylan's parents Kara and Nikki looked deeper into the condition and feared that his marks could one day develop into a deadly skin cancer. But the affected skin surface area was far too large to simply remove the spots.

Then a ray of hope came from an unexpected direction. Implants—like the ones used for breast enlargement—were inserted beneath Dylan's healthy skin. The implants were then slowly expanded with a saline solution over the course of three months in order to stretch his skin. This was an important preparatory step before continuing with his treatment.

Eventually, the implants were taken out, his largest birthmark was removed, and the excess skin was used to fill in the gap.
