I know of a worse one, but after I saw this, this is the one I was thinking of.
This is a true case of a young man with gross cranial facial deformity.
This gentleman was found in Asia, his family kept him home, and working in the rice field because of the ridicule he recieved from the public. The
guy was a hermit.
A team of Doctors from all over the world worked oon him.
He had an underdeveloped "extra face", which would express coorsponding with his willed expression on his primary features.
He also had a "hump back" which was eventually found to be some ribcage of his disjoined brother.
The team removed much of the deformity, but I dont know what ever happened to this this poor guy.
I saw this documentary many years ago, and is still very fresh im my mind, because I felt so bad for him, and was so happy to know something was being
done to better his quality of life.
