Rare disorder causes toddler's head to swell to 3 times the size of an adult's

An Indonesian toddler suffers from a rare disease, which has caused her head to grow to three times the size of an average adult’s.

Dilla Anargia Adilla, 3, was born with hydrocephalus, a rare condition that causes her body to produce too much spinal fluid.

This excess fluid collects in the skull causing her head to grow at an alarming rate and from ear to ear her head now measures more than 39 inches.

The debilitating condition has left the little girl unable to walk or talk, and she spends her days being cared for by her dad Azwar Anas, 31; mom Puspita, 28; and sister Fazira, 7, at their home in Bogor, Indonesia.

The condition affects 1 in 500 babies and is treatable in the UK through two-hour procedure, where a neurosurgeon inserts a thin tube called a shunt to drain the fluid.

But Dilla’s family have been unable to afford any treatment and doctors in Indonesia are now reluctant to carry out the operation due to the severity of Dilla’s condition.

"Ever since I was told by the doctors before her birth about her disabilities I have accepted it from the start," Puspita said. “I know that God sent Dilla to me to take care of her with all my heart."
