ABSTRACT
The recent success of therapeutic transplants has led to anencephalic babies being considered as a possible source of organs for newborns. The first scientific reports of successful attempts to do this have sparked debate as to the moral issues involved. The results of these discussions have produced practical difficulties that make it almost impossible to convert na anencephalic neonate into a real organ donor. The donation of stem-cells and bone marrow by anencephalic babies has surprisingly still not been investigated.
