* Brazil / Zika / Story #4059926

Two weeks shy of his first birthday, doctors began feeding Jose Wesley Campos through a nose tube because swallowing problems had left him dangerously underweight.

Learning how to feed is the baby's latest struggle as medical problems mount for him and many other infants born with small heads and health problems to mothers infected with the Zika virus in Brazil.

A year after a spike in the number of newborns with the defect known as microcephaly - one of the many symptoms of congenital Zika syndrome - doctors and researchers have seen many of the babies develop swallowing difficulties, epileptic seizures and vision and hearing trouble.
