The Courageous Battle of a Boy with Giant Hands against Life’s Challenges

A rare condition called macrodactyly has caused the hands of an 8-year-old Indian boy, Mohammad Kaleem, to develop abnormally large, resembling elephant feet. He has been ridiculed by his peers and shunned by villagers who call him a “demon” and keep their distance.

According to Globaltimes, Mohammad Kaleem suffers from an extremely rare congenital disorder that has resulted in his hands growing unusually large, weighing 8 kg each. Due to this condition, he faces bullying from his friends and is avoided by the people in his village, who consider him a “demon”.

As the boy grows older, his hands continue to grow and become increasingly disproportionate to his body weight.

With hands as large as elephant feet, Mohammad Kaleem struggles to perform simple daily tasks such as tying shoelaces or using a phone.

According to doctors, Kaleem has a highly rare congenital disorder that causes an uncontrollable growth in his hands.

In his daily life, even tasks as basic as getting dressed or eating require assistance from his family.

While his hands are enormous like “elephant feet,” his thumbs are smaller compared to his other fingers.

Kaleem currently lives with his family in a remote village in eastern India. Both his parents were astonished by the extraordinary appearance of their son’s hands, but they do not have enough money to seek medical help.

His father shared that since birth, his son’s hands have had an unusual and peculiar shape compared to other children his age.

The story of Kaleem’s distressing life, after being published in the newspaper, has touched the hearts of millions. He is now receiving assistance from medical experts in southern India who are working to perform surgery to reduce the size of his hands.

Doctors have diagnosed him with macrodactyly, a condition that causes abnormal growth in the muscles and bones of the hands.

The experts are currently measuring the size of his hands before proceeding with the surgery.

The medical team hopes that after treatment, the boy will be able to lead a better life and perform tasks just like any other normal person.
