7-Year-Old Boy Suffers From Rare Skin Disorder

Ripon Sarker is suffering from a rare skin condition caused by human papillomaviruses, an infection which results in the growth of scaly warts.

The 7-year-old boy from Bangladeshi, who was first affected when he was only three months old was admitted to Dhaka Medical College Hospital for treatment for the first time on August 20, as his family were too poor to afford the medical attention required.

The warts has grown to the extent that the boy cannot even walk or eat by himself. Fortunately, doctors are hopeful that his hands and feet are operable. They explained that the child’s family is extremely poor and the boy has lacked the nutrition necessary for his physical development, which contributed to the disease.
