(Scroll down for video) A 4-year-old girl is getting used to people staring at her due to a rare condition that makes her appear to be pregnant.
The girl’s family of China, are desperately seeking a cure for the disease that left her with a massive oversized belly.
Hu Yunxing traveled from her hometown of Shanxi province to Beijing, trying to find out what was happening to the young girl.
Her parents hopes that doctors would have a diagnosis and treatment for the child. Yunxing is suffering from a rare condition known as Budd-Chiari Syndrome.
“Now that we have a diagnosis, we are very happy and have great confidence that there will be a future for our daughter,” Hu Tianpeng said.
Budd-Chiari Syndrome is brought about by blood vessel blockages, and accumulation of blood and other fluids.
The condition affects approximately one in a million people.
