Abul Bajandar suffers from a very rare disease that is slowly infecting his upper and lower limbs.
The man’s hands seem covered with the same bark that covers the trees.
Abul is only 27 years old and is from Khulna, Bangladesh. And his hands and feet are covered by skin lesions that look like tree bark.
The boy suffers from a disease known as ‘epidermodysplasia verruciformis’ since he is nine years.
If doctors don’t operate, the young man will completely transform into a tree, becoming a real-life Ent.
Another half-man half tree lives in Indonesia. His name is Dede and tries to take care of his two children.
But he has the same root-like structures growing out of his body.
Where he lives, Dede is known as the Tree Man.
To support his family, Dede displays his skin deformities in ‘freak’ shows.
Half way across the world, in Romania, farmer Ion Toader also has that extraordinary ‘half-human half-tree’ condition. He has growths all over his hands and has not been able to drive a tractor for five years.
Those three guys have an extremely rare condition called epidermodysplasia verruciformis (EV).
Epidermodysplasia verruciformis (EV) is an extremely rare skin disease that occurs when wartlike lesions cover parts of the body.
It’s a type of genetic disease known as an autosomal recessive inherited disorderthat makes a person highly susceptible to infections caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV).
Many of these lesions take on the appearance of tree bark or tree roots. Because of this, EV is sometimes referred to as “tree-man disease” or “tree-man syndrome.”
Growths may be limited to a small cluster of just a few warts or extend to more than 100 warts covering much of the body.
If you do not find a way to stop the progression of the Tree-Man disease, you become a real human trunk. This extremely rare syndrom is just a real nightmare. [CNN]
