The baby, who sufferers Goldenhar's Syndrome
which affects one in 500,000 births, is receiving treatment at Newcastle's Royal Victoria hospital.
Maria suffers from Goldenhar's Syndrome
- a rare condition which left the right side of her face badly deformed at birth.
The hospital won a police protection order to prevent Maria, who suffers from Goldenhar's Syndrome
, from being taken away.
She said staff at Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary were using Maria as an "experiment" because her condition, Goldenhar's Syndrome
, which affects one in 500,000 births, was so rare.
We would like to bring Goldenhar's syndrome
to the attention of your readers.
