The doctors were just as surprised as his mother, Brandi McGlathery, about Eli’s condition, which occurs in 1 out of every 197 million people and is known as arrinia or congenital arhinia.

In fact, Eli’s only problem is a lack of nostrils since he has the corresponding nasal cavities. At 5 days old he had a tracheotomy that was needed to help him breathe more easily, and will continue to have reconstructive surgery to help relieve his nasal cavities and have his own nose.
