Unbelievable Medical Wonders

Our bodies are apt to be our autobiographies. – Frank Gillette Burgess

How true it may sound; but the fact is, our body is still a mystery to a large extent. It’s structure, functioning, reflexes, responses still amaze scientists and laymen alike. No wonder, sometimes when the uniqueness evolves into something too grotesque, it leaves nothing in the mind but amazement. Lets look at some medical marvels witnessed! Before you continue to scroll down, please note: this is not for the faint hearted !

Stretchiest skin

Garry Turner, of Caistor, Lincolnshire, England, currently holds the record for the stretchiest skin (up to 15.8cm/6.25″)

Garry has a rare medical condition called Elhers-Danlos Syndrome, a disorder of the connective tissues affecting the skin, ligaments and internal organs. In this condition, the collagen that strengthens the skin and determines its elasticity becomes defective, resulting in, among other things, a loosening of the skin, and hypermobility of the joints. Though Garry is mildly affected, but in more serious cases, it can cause the fatal collapse or rupturing of blood vessels.

Nose Tumor

Fei Jianjun, 40, suffering from rhinocarcinoma, at a hospital in Changchun in China’s Jilin province on Aug. 19, 2010.

His condition began September ’09, when a pimple appeared at his nose tip. But the “pimple” never stopped growing, getting so large it began to distort his face and push his eyes to the side. That also resulted in loss of vision. Now he can only see a few meters away and sunlight stings his eyes. Unable to afford medical treatment, Fei decided to live as is, but doctors at Jilin Military Hospital stepped in mid-August to offer him free treatment and found out that he would have died within six months without immediate treatment. The doctors have planned for a radiation therapy to shrink the tumor, followed by corrective plastic surgery on his face.

World’s smallest body builder

Aditya “Romeo” Dev, from India weighs about 20 lbs and is 2 feet, 9 inches tall.

Romeo can shoulder press custom made 1.5 kg dumbbells, a notable feat given his 9 kg (20 lbs.) body weight and 84 cm (2′ 9″) stature. Although it has not been published in a Guinness World Records book, in 2006 they recognized him to be the “world’s smallest bodybuilder”. In 2008, Aditya was diagnosed with aneurysms which, if left untreated, are a serious threat to his life. Aneurysms and Moyamoya are common symptoms of the syndrome MOPD II, which is the cause of Aditya’s dwarfism; Despite that Romeo is well proportioned, having a head of 38 cm (15″) and a chest of 51 cm (20″).

Fetus in fetu a.k.a. The Parasitic Twin

With less than 100 cases of parasitic twins in the world, it is definitely a medical marvel in modern times.

Fetus in fetu is a developmental abnormality in which a mass of tissue resembling a fetus forms inside the body. There are two theories of origin concerning “fetus in fetu”. One theory is that the mass begins as a normal fetus but becomes enveloped inside its twin. The other theory is that the mass is a highly developed tumor. “Fetus in fetu” is estimated to occur in 1 in 500,000 live births

The Indonesian Treeman

Dede Koswara is one of the 200 people to be infected with Lewandowsky-Lutz dysplasia, rare skin disorder.

Dede Koswara, 35, from Tanjung Jaya, West Java province, is infected from a rare skin disorder that leads to gnarled growths sprouting from his hands and feet. After knowing about him through an internet viral video, a US dermatologist treated him and removed about 4 pounds of the hornlike growths from Koswara’s limbs, in 2008. However, his warts have returned and it appears he will need two surgeries a year for the rest of his life to keep them at bay.The growths started appearing on his body when he was a teenager and earned him the “tree man” moniker.
