'Tree Man' from Indonesia::developing roots on body (PICS)
Dede,an Indonesian fisherman is developing tree root like things growing from his skin.
This growing started after he cut his knee as a teenager. The man is now receiving medical treatment for his rare disease.
He is a father of two.His wife left him already and he's fired from the job as he can hardly hold any tool.
"I feel sad because my wife left me," says Dede. "And with my condition I cannot look after my kids. I miss working very much. But unfortunately I just can't do it."
The University of Maryland’s Dr Anthony Gaspari said that the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) was the cause of the condition and that a course of synthetic Vitamin A can improve his condition.
A Discovery Channel documentary on Dede has been premiered already.
Hope he get's out of his difficulty soon....
