Social stigma adds to the woes of 12-year-old boy with rare physical deformity

In a rare medical condition, a 12-year-old boy in Indore has extraordinarily large feet, almost double the size of others.

Ramkishan Dhuma Barela’s right feet is 3-inch long. His body weight is 26 kg 44 gm out of which his feet alone account for 6 kg 700 gms. As the toe and fingers are also abnormally large, he faces difficulty in finding shoes of his size and has to walk without wearing a footwear.

A class 7th student, Ramkishan has become the talk of town because of the deformity.

His father says that more than the problem his son faces in walking, its the societal behaviour towards the minor boy that concerns him more.

Meanwhile, various doctors Ramkishan has approached have turned him away saying there is no treatment for such a health problem.
