A nine-month-old baby in Ottawa is unable to open his mouth due to a rare condition and doctors don’t have any case history to help treat him, according to CBC News.



Wyatt Scott has congenital trismus, an extremely rare disorder that prevents the young boy from opening his jaw.

Doctors at the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) said the condition has its ripple effects that kept Wyatt there for nearly the first three months of his life and have sent him back for many emergency room visits.
