Weird Birth Marks


The man has a rare birthmark that also covers a large part of his body. Such birthmarks are seen on no more than 3 percent of the world’s population.

The six-year-old from Colombia was teased and banned from going to school because of the growth.
Locals in his village feared that he had been cursed by evil forces because he was conceived during an eclipse. Also, his mum, Luz, could not afford to pay for surgery to help rid her son of the birthmark blighting his life. However, when plastic surgeon Neil Bulstrode, from Great Ormond Street Hospital in London, heard about the boy’s plight, he and his team flew to Bogotá to operate on him.
They eventually managed to remove the mole with a series of skin grafts.

Doctors inserted two tissue expanders under the skin, which gradually inflated so they looked like two perfect devil’s horns. After four months the implants were removed and the blemish was cut out, allowing the new skin to be stitched together, leaving just a small Harry Potter-style scar on George’s forehead.
During the four months when he had the horns, George was subjected to cruel taunts from passers-by.

However, the hairy hide has apparently grown until it now spreads over her entire back and is starting to grow on her arms and face.
Surgeon Dr. Lou Zhongquan of Zhaoqing City Dermatological Hospital believes that the youngster may be suffering from a rare hereditary disease that has sent normal moles out of control.
