    Baby Born With “Permanent Smile” Medical Condition Is Winning Hearts On Social Media

    An Australian baby born with a rare ailment known as a “permanent grin” is winning the hearts of people all over the internet. Her parents’ efforts to bring attention to her illness via social media have resulted in her becoming a phenomenon on the internet at large.

    Ayla Summer Mucha was born in December 2021 with Bilateral Macrostomia, an extremely uncommon disorder in which the corners of the mouth do not correctly fuse together while the infant is still in the womb. This caused Ayla to be born with an abnormally large mouth.

    Bilateral Microstomia is exceedingly unusual and affects just one side of the mouth but in Ayla’s case, it has affected both sides of her mouth. This extremely unusual disease was discovered to affect Ayla Summer Mucha shortly after her birth in December of 2021.

    This has a significant impact, both on the aesthetics and the functionality, of the oral cavity. This ailment has resulted in the infant always having a smile on her face, which has catapulted her to the status of a social media celebrity. Her mother uploaded a few pictures of the newborn to Instagram and shared them with followers.

    The physicians in Australia informed Cristina Vercher and Blaize Mucha of the news, explaining that Ayla had developed this condition while she was still in Cristina’s womb.

    Ms. Vercher stated, “Blaize and I were not aware of this condition nor had I ever met someone born with a macrostomia. So it came as a huge shock.”

    She then posted a picture of the baby looking just precious, and she wrote,  “My Darling Lala. Better late than never. Running 2 days behind at all times… Almost out of her premmie suits.” This melted people’s hearts all over social media.

    In the beginning, the medical professionals working at Flinder’s Medical Centre in Adelaide, South Australia, were perplexed since they had never seen a case like this before, and prenatal scans had failed to reveal it. They did not notify the new parents about the situation until many hours later.

    “With this came more difficulties as the hospital had little knowledge or support for such a rare condition,” Ms. Vercher stated.

    She further added, “All I could think about as a mother was where I went wrong, especially when I had been so pedantic throughout my entire pregnancy. Yet, her father and I had been reassured by multiple doctors after days of genetic testing and scan that this condition was entirely out of our control and was of no fault of our own.”

    In 2007, the Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Journal released comparative research that documented just 14 examples of the condition.

    The procedure to correct Aylas’s too broad smile is now being discussed by her parents with the attending physicians. Macrostomia is a deformity that affects more than just appearance, since Ayla may not be able to latch or feed because of it.
