Abul Bajandar suffered from a condition known as epidermodysplasia verruciformis, an illness that is very rare in the world.

The 27-year-old says the condition started when he was only 5-years-old and became aggrevated over time. His hands developed tree-like branches and covered-up his fingers on both hands.

He was not able to eat, write, shower or even dress himself.

After news broke of his rare condition, he was branded the ‘tree man

After a series of ground breaking surgeries, he has been able to recover his hands and is now waiting to be discharged from hospital. He can now feed himself, brush his teeth and even write all by himself.
