Move over Bearded Woman!

Make way for a new medical marvel - Tree Man!

This man, from a remote village in Indonesia, has an extraordinary skin condition: he has root like structures growing out of his body - branches that can grow up to 5cm a year and which protrude from his hands and feet, and welts covering his whole body.

He made a living being part of a freak circus, but with the help of an American dermatologist he attempts to regain his life back.
Click here for pictures of him after an operation.

More videos of the Discovery Channel series "My Shocking Story." (It's a good thing I don't have cable or else I'd be glued to the TV)
