Huang Chuncai: China’s Elephant Man (Where Is He Now?)

Chinese man Huang Chuncai had the most extreme case of neurofibromatosis ever recorded. His condition was so severe, he was been dubbed “China’s Elephant Man.” With a massive 25 kg tumor that hanged from his face to his waist, his face appeared like it was actually melted.

Sadly, his condition prevented him from living a normal life. Chuncai could barely move, eat, or even sleep. As if that wasn’t enough of a challenge, when he walked, he had to hold his growth.

Where Is Chuncai Now?

The Boy Born With 2 Percent Of His Brain: A Neurologist’s Perspective

Six years later, he had made remarkable progress. He was a bright, interactive child who could certainly see, hear, eat, and talk. Thanks to intensive physical therapy he was learning to walk, and even to surf. Noah had gone from having an estimated 2% of a normal brain size at birth to a brain size that was 80% normal at age 6. How is this possible? read more
