The Bubblewrap Boy: Extraordinary People

The story of 16-year-old Mithun Chauhan, who suffers from an extremely rare genetic condition that has left him with large swollen lumps all over his face and body. His disfigurement has led to the creation of a rumour that his village has become home to a reclusive monster. The condition, known as neurofibroma, affects one in 33,000 people and causes tumours to grow along the nerve endings, with Mithun’s case among the most extreme ever discovered.
