The Baby Boy Who Was Born Without A Nose (Photos)


Eli Thompson

Eli Thompson is a toddler who was born with no nose.

The young boy has however died at the age of just two years old.

According to Metro UK, Eli Thompson was pronounced dead in Mobile, Alabama, on Saturday night, three months after celebrating his second birthday.

He was just one of 37 babies in the world with the condition when he was born on March 4, 2015.

He was premature and did not have any nasal passages or sinus cavities, a condition known as arhinia, and was given a trachaotomy at five days old.

His father Jeremy Finch told Al.com: he was ‘very, very bright and happy, always smiling and giving everybody fist bumps.’


Eli communicated through sign language but his parents said that he was a high-spirited child and got on with other children.

Mr Finch added: ‘He touched a lot of people’s lives. A lot of people cared about him.’

At seven months old he met Tessa, another young girl in Ireland who had the same condition as him.


Her mother Grainne Evans said afterwards: To get to introduce Tessa to Eli was like a dream come true and it meant the world to us to sit and talk with his family.

‘Tessa was totally taken with Eli and hugged him and stroked his head. Watching Eli gaze up at her was too precious for words.’
