Signs Divorce Could Be a Good Option
Last season The Doctors discussed a man with a condition commonly called "tree man disease," which causes bark-like warts to sprout on his hands and legs. The 27-year-old father and husband, Abul, now has his life back.
Abul lived with the condition for years before beginning surgery to remove the growths last February. After 16 groundbreaking surgeries and more to go, Abul can now eat and write using his own hands. Plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon shares, "That is a remarkable result they got."
ER physician Dr. Travis Stork says, "What's shocking to me is that there's only 4 cases of this to date!" What causes this condition called epidermodysplasia verruciformis? Dr. Stork shares that it's caused by a defect in the immune system, which increases the susceptibility to warts from the human papillomavirus or HPV. For Abul, the lesions started when he was just 10 years old, and got progressively worse.
The Doctors wish him nothing but the best moving forward.
