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?
Chuncai has had a total of 4 major surgeries (from 2007 – 2013) to reduce the size of his growths. If you are online searching for an updated article on his progress, you won’t be able to find any information more recent than March of 2017.
