A case that shook doctors - Aaron Murray, the boy who lives without a brain


One of the most mysterious things in the universe is our own body. In each of us there are amazing mysteries that medical science still does not fully understand.

When we believe we have learned everything about the human body, there is a new oddity that creates even more confusion. A bizarre phenomenon that defies everything we think we know about the human body is related to people who came to the world without what might be called "brain."

Not only did they survive, they also had a normal life. They have lived for years with consciousness and consciousness and, in some cases, have integrated perfectly into society.

The case of Aaron Murray, a boy who survived without a brain, shows how little we really know.

A rare disease and a bleak prognosis

He was born in 2013 in Lanarkshire, Scotland, suffering from a serious illness called holoprosencephaly. Those who suffer from this disease have undeveloped or only partially developed brains.

The disease is very rare. Usually, children who suffer from it die before birth, or anyway, a few minutes or hours after they come to the world. The same prognosis was received by little Aaron.

The doctors said he had little to live and that his illness was "incompatible with life." Aaron was born only with the brainstem, and the rest of the brain was totally lacking.

A normal scan should depict the brain filling the cranial cavity up. The brain would have been the white area with black liquid pockets inside and outside the brain.

    They allow the circulation of vitamins and brain cleansing of toxins. By scanning Aaron, the brainstem stops under the cavity that is full of fluid, "a doctor said about the boy's condition.

It took minutes, then hours, then weeks and the baby was still alive. The doctors were surprised. The child was breathing alone and seemed quite healthy, taking into account that the brain was completely missing.

After eight weeks of observation and surgery that reduced fluid accumulation, the family was allowed to take her baby home.


A miracle of nature

He still thought he would soon die. But Aaron defied this prognosis.

Not only did he survive, but proved he was aware of the surrounding world and the people beside him. He also showed other cognitive abilities, such as groans, smiles.

Moreover, he was able to play with his older brother, Jack, and he looked at his favorite TV programs.

The most impressive was the fact that she spoke the word "mother" when she was two years old, an age that far exceeded the expectations of doctors. His mother, Emma Murray, said:

 "I was told he could live three minutes, three hours or three days. The doctors told me that if it were another organ, she could have done something. But they could not grow a brain.

Right from the beginning, Aaron proved he was a real fighter. Yesterday we called him the word "mother". I beat my hands and he chuckled. He looked at me and he said, "Mom."

He had repeated the word I was saying! I stared at him, then burst into tears. It was a very exciting time. I can not believe it! It was the most amazing thing I've ever heard in my life! "Reminds Aaron's mother, Emma Murray.

Since then, it has been reported that the child would have said other words. Aaron showed an amazing cognitive sophistication for a child who should have been a "vegetable."

Doctors are stupefied

Having just the brainstem, Aaron was only capable of basic survival mechanisms, such as breathing and maintaining the proper functioning of internal organs.

But the child showed that he understood what was happening around him. Because he lacked the brain, he should not have been chanting when someone was near.

Also, he should not have been able to play with others, open gifts, and watch television. And, above all, he should not have been able to speak.

Even after all these years of defeating the prognosis and surviving without a brain, he should not have a more complex mental function than that of a newborn.

This aspect of his case continues to amaze the medical community. Dr. Jill Yazz is part of the Spina Bifidia and Hydrocephalus Association. Here's what he said about Aaron's miraculous situation:

"The brain stem controls the basic functions we need to survive. The trunk makes the heart beat, control breathing and keep organs in operation such as the intestines.

So Aaron managed to survive so far. As long as the brain stem coordinates these functions, it is able to survive.

But what is remarkable about this case is that the cerebral trunk does not control our thinking or consciousness. So the fact that the child can chuckle, smile, and can say the word "mother" is fascinating.

There is no explanation for this. It's remarkable, said Jill Yazz.

Even if he can not stand up and walk alone, Aaron Murray has turned out to be a miracle of modern medicine. Aaron Murray died in May 2017.

There are others like him

Aaron Murray's case is not the only one of this kind. Jaxon Buell, a boy who was born without a cerebellum and a large part of the skull, lives and is aware of the world around him. Moreover, he is also able to speak certain words.

There are also other equally incredible cases, such as Kaliysha Barret's case. It was born with a partial functional cerebral trunk and no cerebral cortex. However, he managed to live until he was 6 years old.

Another girl named Alex Simpson from Omaha, Nebraska, lived for more than 10 years without a brain, showing remarkable consciousness and corresponding responses to various stimuli.

Another case is a boy named Trevor Judge Waltrip, from Shreveport, Louisiana. He was born in 2001 without a brain and managed to reach the age of 12 when he died quietly in his sleep.

Although he was blind and could not speak, Trevor was quite alert and showed emotional reactions and emotional ties to family members.

She recognized those she loved and interact with them. And the list can continue with many other miraculous stories.
