One in a billion: Savita, Monish and Savitri inherited the rare disorder from their father
The need for hair removal is a tricky issue for any young woman – but you have to feel for the Sangli sisters, blighted by Werewolf Syndrome.
Covered from head to foot in thick hair, the Indian siblings are reported to be outcasts in their village in Bangalore due to the rare condition which affects just one in a BILLION.
There is hope for 23-year-old Savitha, Monisha, 19, and 15-year-old Savitri, however.
Although there is no cure for the condition, local charity New Life Karnataka are facilitating unique hair cream removal cream treatment for their hypertricosis universalis from a medical team at a specialist hospital.
While their family remain hopeful of an improvement in the situation, they are reliant on the financial assistance of the NGO.
Elder sister Anitha is reported to have said: “We find it difficult to make ends meet.
“But I welcome any move which will help my children lead a normal life.”
The sisters inherited the hairy disorder from their father, but four other sisters have escaped the fluffy curse.
Sadly, they are reported to be too scared to leave their small village in Pune, central India, for fear of being attacked.
Puts a little bit of upper lip fuzz into context, doesn’t it?
