26-yr-old suffers growth disorder

Jerly Lyngdoh and his mother photographed at the paediatric department of Shillong hospital in the north-eastern state of Meghalaya, India, April 13, 2009. Surgeons are baffled after discovering a 26-year-old man trapped inside the body of a two-year-old toddler. Jerly Lyngdoh looks like any other tot with his tiny head and delicate 2 ft 9 ins long body. But when he opens his mouth he reveals a full set of adult teeth. Jerly is thought to suffer from a rare disorder called Pan-hypo pituitarism leading to poor secretion of growth hormones from the Pituitary glands. [CFP]
