Doctors in India have extracted 232 teeth from the mouth of a 17-year-old boy in a seven-hour operation.

Ashik Gavai was brought in with a swelling in his right jaw, Dr Sunanda Dhiware, head of Mumabi's JJ Hospital's dental department, told the BBC. The teenager had been suffering for 18 months and travelled to the city from his village after local doctors failed to identify the cause of the problem.

Doctors have described his condition as "very rare" and "a world record".

If you have a phobia of dentists this is one to let pass by lol.

I'd hate to be playing tooth fairy at that house afterwards.
My kids get 5 bucks a tooth.

I had the theory that the spike of cancer in India that had happened after the Iraq wars was because of DU particles carried over from sand storms.

I wonder if this is actually a cancer caused by radioactive DU dust?

Pretty far out there, I know, but I blame my science fiction addiction.

Sounds like it - a dental cell somewhere got locked into the "grow into a tooth and gather neighbors" mode.

The DU (and some of it was ENRICHED uranium) was detected in England and so I presume it has blown all over the world at this point. Then there's the neverending joy of Fuku and Di(ichi).

Back after the first Gulf War, I was doing medical transcriptions for Johns Hopkins Pediatric Surgery department and the International Division had a slew of babies coming over from Kuwait after the oil fields were burned, born with their bladders outside of their bodies, a very rare deformity. I kept expecting the anomalies to be reported on the evening news, but I never heard anything about it, and HIPAA regulations prevented me from saying much. I've always rather regretted not reporting it somehow anonymously. While the individual doctors would probably have noticed the uptick in a rare birth defect, no one else in the medical profession would have been able to put 2 and 2 together as easily as the people getting the recurring dictations.

Oh, and on that thought: Crohn's disease is now at epidemic levels, (was rare before 1970) but it's not a 'reportable' illness so you'll never hear much about it. It's strangely identical to a disease that dairy cattle get ... and pasteurizing milk doesn't kill the tuberculin-like bug that's involved.
Good thing the Dairy Industry has all those lobbyists, or you might have heard about that connection.
