A strange disease that attacks the human face, almost the entire face covered by fur, there are many people who call this disease as a disease of wolf fur.

When the hair begins to grow at face 2-year-old boy named Abys DeJesus, doctors immediately recognize the symptoms as Human Werewolf Syndrome.
The disease is called werewolf syndrome because people with this disease throughout his body will grow hair like werewolves (of course without the sharp teeth and claws).

Medical world know with this disease syndrome or Hypertrichosis Werewolf. Because of the rarity, the syndrome is caused by a chromosomal mutation that only affects less than 100 people in the world.

The researchers traced the location of the mutation changes experienced by people with this syndrome in Mexico on the X chromosome (one of two chromosomes in the human gene).
a little explanation about the disease I have ever read from the internet:
Professor Xue Zhang, an expert in genetics from the Peking Union Medical College, also has been testing a person with this disease and found that genetic abnormalities on chromosome X.

Genetic abnormality was found on chromosome X also belongs to sufferers who are in Mexico. Only, the gene abnormality found in people is different in China.
However, the extra DNA on their X chromosome that may have contributed to trigger the active genes in the surrounding hair grower.

Pragna Patel, scientists from the University of Southern California estimates that the culprit is a gene abnormality of this gene called SOX3, which is known to be responsible for
hair growth.

I watched an episode of CSI about people with Werewolf syndrome a while back. Would you join the circus if you had Werewolf syndrome? Just out of curiosity. :shock:

Lol, why not?



Do you think you would fit in around "normal" people? (I'm not saying people who are different aren't normal, I just used it for lack of a better word.)

I wouldn't want to be states at, laughed at, pointed at etc all the time.. You couldn't pay me to do that. I can't speak for how accepting others would be.

I understand that. I imagine that would happen if you went anywhere in public. At least you would get paid for it at the circus. :wink:
