    Born with Too Much Skin

    Not for the squeamish...

    Research into a rare genetic disorder which makes sufferers grow more skin in one day than a healthy person does in two weeks has identified a mutation which may lead to development of new treatments.

    I watched a documentary on these girls. I think it was called Harlequin Babies or something. It is an awful awful thing they have to live with. I pray that they come up with something to help these angels one day soon.

    I've seen stills of Harlequin babies; it's the stuff of nightmares...
