This newborn, aptly dubbed Werewolf, is the newest member of the family and was born hairy from head to toe. The baby, who is 22 days old, receives a rare gene from her family, which causes a condition called Werewolf Syndrome.
Her mother, Savita Sambhaji Raut, 26, said she feared for her daughter’s future after inheriting a medical condition but accepted her fate. I don’t know if the hair on her body can fall off in the future, I’m just afraid that she will be stigmatized and hurt when she grows up. And for me it doesn’t matter what a girl looks like, she will love her unconditionally. Because she is my blood and all my love.
Speaking from her home in Madhavnagar, central India, she said: ‘I’m glad she’s alive, but it makes me very sad’.
She added: ‘I fear for her future but God chose us like this.
‘I’m her mother so I have to accept her and move on’.
Her condition is known as hirsutism, and there is currently no cure for it. The only way is to live together and accept reality. Her daughter, who has yet to be named, is one of several hundred people in the world born with Werewolf Syndrome.
These happenings make no difference to the family and the child’s father, Mr. Milind, who says he is delighted to have a daughter. I don’t care what she looks like, what matters to me right now is that she is my little girl.
Two different types of hirsutism are generalized hirsutism, which occurs over the entire body, and localized hirsutism, which is limited to a certain area. Hirsutism can be congenital, present from birth, or acquired later in life. Hair overgrowth occurs in all areas of the skin except for androgen-dependent hair in the pubic, facial, and armpit areas.
Currently, her life is still very good, everyone in the family loves her. Hopefully over time the situation will get better, and there is a way to fix it. So that she can be confident in front of everyone when she grows up.
