It’s Anencephaly, a genetic/chromosomal/ environmental/drugs during pregnancy like carbamazepine /folic acid difiency during pregnancy..... causing Neural tube defect in which upper portion of neural tube doesn’t close. So there is no development of portion of brain, skull,scalp. It’s incidence is about 1 in 5000 babies. Many child stillborn, but if live birth , mortality is very high.

Microcephaly. It's a condition in which a baby's head is significantly smaller than expected, often due to abnormal brain development. Causes of microcephaly include infections, malnutrition or exposure to toxins.. Microcephaly can occur because a baby's brain has not developed properly during pregnancy or has stopped growing after birth, which results in a smaller head size.. There is no treatment for microcephaly that can return a child's head to a normal size or shape. Treatment focuses on ways to decrease the impact of the associated deformities and neurological disabilities.

Baby is not going to have a decent and dignified living, with modern technology it is very easy to detect such deformities in early pregnancy, it was ideal to terminate the pregnancy.
