Cyclopia is also a congenital malformation that leads to a strange baby being born. The malformation leads to the total union of the two eyes in the mid forehead, hence resulting a cyclop baby. Babies suffering of the cyclop often die soon after birth due to even more malformations of the heart and neurological system.
