Boy with giant hands shunned from school

15 posts in this topic

An eight-year-old boy has been shunned from his school after his hands ballooned to gigantic proportions larger than his head.

Kaleem, a keen cricket fan, was left unable to do even basic tasks - including tying his shoelaces and feeding himself - after his hands grew to an incredible 13 inches from the end of his middle finger to the base of his palm.

How awkward for him :(

Those images are bizarre. It almost seems like a hoax... If it's real then the poor kid should probably have them amputated and get prostheses at some point. He will never be able to live a normal life. Sad.

If there was an Indian deity with big Hands, there would be throngs of worshippers at his door.

If he was attending a school for proctology I could definitely understand. :whistle:

I hope the media coverage reaches out to a capable person who can possibly help him and his situation.

Well, the poor kid has to play the hand that was dealt him

I don't know why he doesn't confront those bullys... he would win in a fight hands-down

He's probably pretty handy around the house

I bet he becomes very popular when he starts dating though

But seriously, as soon as read the title, and it seemed that some people had shunned a kid right out of school, I knew it was probably in India.

Why is it that most of these weird genetic anomalies/conditions seems to happen in India or Indonesia? I don't know how many unusual bodily mutations (or what the correct term is) I've read about, coming out of India and Indonesia?! Is it either an environmental cause or is it some sort of genetic predisposition thats causing this?

Or is it just coincidences for me, that I happened to read only about these stories coming out of those two places, and that I missed all the others happening around the world? I mean, I know of many older cases (1800-early 1900) happening around the world, but the more recent ones seems to emanate from around there.

I don't have the time to surf around for all the cases I've read about, but here are a few from India and Indonesia>>

PS: Fair Warning: There are some pretty graphic images

I suspect that their incidences of birth defects are probably no higher than anywhere else, but the grinding poverty and general disregard for human life probably means that things that would have been corrected at birth or in early childhood are not corrected. I have no data to back that up, just speculating.

This is true. The reason we don't see it much here in western societies is because of identifying the problem early and often resulting in abortions.

There was also that story about uranium mines in India where the villages around showed higher deformities. Something we wouldn't see in our western countries either.

You might also be forgetting the uncontrolled environmental pollution. Their waterways are a mess and I think the dismal access to health care is a contributing factor.

With no access to anything, these conditions can't even be treated superficially so these people are forced to endure these things, watching as their bodies are slowly consumed by deformities.

I shudder to think what these people are going through and I cannot help but think that there is really no excuse for a government to continue letting the environment be polluted and then not having educated doctors at least prescribe something to alleviate or slow down the conditions.

I don't know..it just seems all so unnecessary.

Then people should stop buying products made with leather or materials made in India.

Instead, buy leather shoes made in the US with leather from an american tannery. Make a statement with your dollars.

Seriously, this kid is bullied?

He'd kill a man with a slap.
