Baby Boy Born With Hair Over Half His Body

As seen in photographs that are currently going popular online, doctors were astounded when a boy in India was born with thick, dark hair covering more than half of his body. 



The tufty child was born to the unnamed mother at CHC Bawan in Hardoi, Uttar Pradesh. Even though the baby’s birth went through without a hitch, the baby’s 60% of his body was covered in dark hair, according to Jam Press. The startling photos show thick hair covering the baby’s back. However, the infant’s condition originally perplexed the local medical team.


The newborn was subsequently referred to specialist Dr. Ikram Hussain — who diagnosed the child with a giant congenital melanocytic nevus, a “skin condition characterized by an abnormally dark, noncancerous skin patch,” according to MedlinePlus.gov.


This discolored patch, which affects 1 in 20,000 infants globally, “typically expands at the same rate as the body grows and will eventually be at least 40 centimeters (15.75 inches) across,” according to specialists. The surface of a nevus can vary in different areas of the nevus and over time. It might be smooth, rough, elevated, thickened, or bumpy.




The National Library of Medicine further notes that excessive hair growth (hypertrichosis) might occur, as it did in the case of the aforementioned child, and that the skin of nevi is frequently dry and prone to irritation and itching (dermatitis).

Many residents got in touch with the boy’s family after learning about the boy to visit the boy’s condition.


The boy is not the first tyke to be born with excessive hair. In November, a teen in India went viral after disclosing how he suffered from a rare condition called hypertrichosis, which caused him to sprout “werewolf” fur all over his body
