Squashy Toes are much prettier - Look....

Some Asian fathers in the past liked their daughters to have special squashed feet because they are dainty and probably cannot run very far. My dad who is Asian did not like me enough, and my feet are normal, and I can run. There fore I am not a good representation of this story... :S

Infantilism - WRONG

Infantilism is an "abnormal" condition in which an adult retains infantile characteristics. The adult carries out infantile behaviour often with the aid of a helper in their activities.

The Guinea Worm

Guinea worm is a parasitic worm that infects, grows and matures in humans. The worms are native to Africa, but can be found in remote villages in the Rajastan desert of India and Yemen.

Guinea worm larvae infect water fleas that live in standing water. Those drinking the water become infected. After a period of a year worms reach adulthood and mate with the others inside. They pierce through the intestinal wall. Males of the species die and females travel through the body. They mature to a length of 3 metres ending up near the surface of the skin. Commonly in the lower limbs. They begin to cause irritaion, burning blisters and painful swelling. Carriers feel most soothed in the water where their blisters then burst. The worm comes out and releases millions of larvae into the water. Inside the water the cycle begins again where the larvae are swallowed by water fleas.

Carriers may have a fever, swelling, severe pain and blisters when the worm is ready to come out. The worm can slowly be removed by winding it around a stick and pulling out bit by bit once the blisters have burst over a period of weeks to months. Surgery can also help with a dose of antibiotics.

Hairy Lobster

This newly spotted (a few months ago) hairy lobster was found 2300 metres under the South Pacific Ocean South of Easter Island.

It has been named the 'Yeti Crab' around about 15 cm long and of a white color. Its pincers are covered in furry or hair like strands.

It happens to be blind with only the vestige of a membrane in place of eyes. From observation it may be a carnivor, consuming bacteria that may live in its furry hair like strands.

These guys are such a special new find they have had a new family created for them named Kiwaida, derived from Kiwa - the goddess of crusaceans in Polynesian mythology.

Thanks Rebecca :)

Craniopagus Parasiticus

This little girl Egyptian Girl is Manar Maged. She suffered a rare birth defect called Carniopagus Parasiticus. A rare birth defect where the embryo begins to split into an identical twin but the process is not completed leaving the other twin basically in an unfinished state. Dear Manar did have a separation operation (which was successful) but later died of a brain infection.
Her unfinished twin still blinked, smiled, looked around and slept independant of her sister. She had a fully functional second brain. This is a very rare birth defect and Manar is the only case to have survived the operation up until the brain infection.

Special Baby

This special baby was born in Charikot headquarters of Dolakha district. It weighed 2kg and was born a little later than the average nine month gestation period. Its mother was perfectly healthy, suffering no ailments. Having had two normal daughters already, her husband is very happy his wife is ok. The small town was extremely curious about the baby and many hurried to catch a glimpse, police were called in to control the villagers.

A nurse attending the birth mentioned that there was nothing that could be done to save the baby. I have not been able to find a medical term for the reasons of a baby born with these features. I am still researching. At a guess it may be Anencephaly (absence of the scalp, forebrain etc. The cephalic end of the neural tube doesn't close. Causing eyes to protrude from the head without the skull and a sunken neck) Babies may be stillborn or have basic abilities to breath but often die hours after birth. Unable to ever gain consciousness.

Embryo removed from 35 Year old man

Namyatov a tractor driver, 35 years old, first started having problems at the age of 15; experiencing pains in his back. Doctors played it down as to him having a fatty tumor.
Twenty years later the pains returned and
Igor had an operation to have a presumed tuma removed. Instead his little twin brother (an unborn embryo twin bubby) was removed!
