A boy with a skin condition so severe that he looks like a burn victim is pictured in the Agent Orange children's ward of Tu Du Hospital in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.  About 500 of the 60,000 children delivered each year at the maternity hospital, Vietnam's largest, are born with deformities, some because of Agent Orange, according to doctors. This boy is in so much pain because of his condition that he frequently bangs his head against the wall and must wear a padded helmet so that he does not hurt himself.  May 1, 2013.
