Weirdest Diseases

Hiiiiiii!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm here again...actually i got up at 2 pm today because i went to bed at 8.30 am today..did revision all nights.
1. Blue skin disorder

A large family simply known as the "blue people" lived in the hills around Troublesome Creek in Kentucky until the 1960s. They were the blue Fugates. Most of them lived past the age of 80, with no serious illness - just blue skin. The trait was passed on from generation to generation. Click here for more info

2. Werewolf Syndrome

When two year-old Abys DeJesus grew dark, hairy patches on her face, doctors said she has a condition known as Human Werewolf Syndrome. The disease is called werewolf syndrome because people with it look like werewolves - except without the sharp teeth and claws.

3. Progeria

Progeria is caused by a single tiny defect in a child's genetic code, but it has devastating and life-changing consequences. Progeria is extremely rare, there are only around 48 people living with it in the whole world. However, there is a family that has five children with the disease.

4. Elephantiasis

The disease is caused by parasitic worms, including Wuchereria bancrofti, Brugia malayi, and B. timori, all transmitted by mosquitoes. Lymphatic filariasis currently affects 120 million people worldwide, and 40 million of these people have serious disease. When an infected female mosquito bites a person, she may inject the worm larvae, called microfilariae, into the blood.

There are other weird diseases like:
1. Pica: People who doesn't eat food but they eat paper. dirty, glue, etc
2. Vampire diseases : People who sensitive and avoid sun.
3. Alice in wonderland syndrome: Time, space and body image are distorted. What i mean here is he or she will look the size of the dog just like a mouse and the size of the worm like anaconda.

P/S: So many strange things in the world and some of them undiscovered by human. Only GOD can.
