Born with Too Much Skin
Not for the squeamish...
And what I don't understand is there are two sets of sisters. Which means the parents had one child like this, then went ahead and had another. Which, if true, strikes me as a tad irresponsible.
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...
