He's so cute!I'm sure he can be fitted with a prosthetic non functioning nose prior to reconstruction. I worry about medical bills for this poor family!!

According to the article, the mother was suffering from weight loss and vomiting. The doctors prescribed her some medication to control this. So either she was eating or drink something that had toxins that made the placenta make her want to vomit, or the medicines messed up the normal growth cascade of genes that would have created the nose and olfactory system.
The little guy was given a tracheostomy to help him breath regularly. The doctors will probably be playing around with MRI scans and 3D printing to see if they can print a nose for him or just fold skin tissue. They've got 16 years to do this.
