HORNED HUMANS REVISITED

This 88 year-old horned man from Zheng Zhou, China shows a great example of cortex hyperplasia. The condition results in ‘horn-like’ growths. If should be noted that such horns are technically not really horns at all. Still, what else could one possibly call it?

The horn began to grow about 4 months ago when the gentleman picked at a little bump on his head. The horn has continued to grow however a doctor has arranged to remove the unusual growth.

I’ve covered ‘Horned Humans’ in the past. Specifically in regards to Wang the ‘Human Unicorn’ and his time with Ripley.

That article can be found in the archives here.
