A 'Werewolf' boy seeks cure

A young boy from India suffers from an extremely rare genetic condition - Werewolf Syndrome. He has tried everything to cure this strange condition but nothing has worked till now. He is appealing to doctors to find a permanent cure.

"I would like to get the hair removed but even after laser treatment it grows back. The doctors don't have any answers," he said.

The thick matted hair that covers Pruthviraj's face has caused him to be stared at and bullied throughout his childhood, and he rarely leaves his home village in India because of the cruelty of strangers.

"It is difficult when I venture outside of my hometown or where people don't know me," he said. (Telegraph)
