These 10 Medical conditions will leave you Shell-Shocked

Today, Let's have a look at some of the most severe and rare medical conditions in human history. We meet people with this medical conditions everyday and often times laugh at time for being different thereby making them feel unhappy and unlucky for whoever they are. I am posting this so we get to learn about some of this conditions and then we can change our attitude towards people with one form of disability or the other. 

1. Cotard's syndrome
People who have this condition suffers from severe depression and it it connected with paranoia, they're always believing they're dead.
2. Nystagmus
The condition is also called dancing eyes sydrome. Nystagmus is a brain condition in which the eyes go through uncontrollable eye movements from side to side.
3. Oligodactyly
In this rare condition, people are born with less than five fingers on each hand.
4. Polydactyly
It is the condition which is just opposite to the above one. Instead of having fewer fingers, people are born with extra fingers. And the extra fingers are not of any worth as they don't function fully.
5. Alien hand syndrome
People who suffer from this condition are not able to control their own hand's movements.
6. Epidermodysplasia Verruciformis
People who are suffering from this disease are covered with malignant skin tumors in the entire body, they develop a tree-like growth that makes the body look like tree trunks. This disease makes the body look vulnerable.
7. Hailey-Hailey disease
The disease can also be called as familial benign chronic pemphigus. It usually occurs by a gene mutation that is responsible for the inflammation of the outer skin.
8. Hypertrichosis
It's a condition in which patient's entire face is covered with hair that often make them feel embarrassed and socially isolated.
9. Elephantiasis 
Elephantiasis is an obstruction of lymphatic vessels which causes extreme swelling of skin and tissues, typically in the legs or testicles. This disfiguring condition can be brought about in several ways, though a mosquito-borne parasite is the most common cause. Over 40 million people have been affected by the condition.
10. Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva, “Stone Man Syndrome”
Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP) is a progressive genetic disorder that turns soft tissues into bone over time. The ACVR1 gene found in bone, muscles, tendons, and ligaments regulates growth and development of those tissues, and is normally responsible for turning cartilage into bone as children develop. However, mutations of this gene can allow ossification to go unchecked throughout a sufferer's life, even turning skeletal muscle into bone and causing joints to fuse together.
