This is a type of medical condition that I have seen before,
but can't think of the name of right now.


Hypertrichosis.

It's a fairly common condition known as Hairy Nevus.
It's just an exaggerated case.

images.google.com...

There's a google image result for it.
I can't believe doctors are baffled by this, I am a lay person and even I knew what this was immediately.

No hoax, and certainly not photo shopped. It's a hairy nevus, and extremely common, though this child obviously has a severe case. Likely to get worse too.

My daughter would be stoked if she found out she was part-cat like Max (Jessica Alba) in Dark Angel.

However, seeing pictures of severe Hairy Nevus, this is just sad. Granted, it's not the end of the world, but as if childhood teasing isn't scaring enough to deal with an affliction like this. Poor kid.

Anyone else see the 2006 independent movie Fur with Nicole Kidman and Robert Downey Jr. (whose character was afflicted with Hairy Nevus)?

Yeah I'm calling shenanigans on the picture. As one member has already stated, the border areas where the fur meets skin looks dodgy! If the story is sourced from The Sun in the UK, then it's more than likely a hoax!

You gotta wander why the doctors wouldnt call the condition?
Maybe they did, but it didnt make for a good news story.
The Hairy Nevus Ive never seen look like grey fur like.
But them Im not Hairy Nevus Physician

Just wondering, I know the Chinese govt is strict and all....

Would they let me bring her to Comic Con this year?

She'd totally be well received, half Asian half cat? They don't need to feel bad for her, they need to realize she'd be a fan boy superstar in the States!

Was gonna mention that myself, thing is this doesnt look like that for the most part, or like the examples ive seen, Hypertrichosis doesnt do patchs or slowly spreads, its there from birth, complete.

She could be a chimera?... ie part norm part hypertrichosis twin, it happens in animals alot, humans not so much. i wouldnt call hoax like others since these sorts of things do happen... who ever photoshoped it if it is a fake, knew exactly where to put the lay of the hair on her.

Heck from the waist down im rather hirsute myself
heck I can even understand how a mole could do this, since the moles i have all have a rather prominent furry hair growing out of em.

So i wouldnt call hoax.

Well Zazz.. my favorite little chickadee... I would need a high res photo to study the hairline otherwise it would just be an ambiguous exercise in interpreting image artifacts! My gut feeling says that the image doesn't look quite right... that's all I can go on gorgeous!

Personally I am baffled by their being baffled.
All fetuses are covered with down - it's called lanugo - at a certain point of gestation; in most cases it disappears in due course.

It seems only logical to assume that some genetic malfunction is causing the lanugo to regrow. Granted, it must be quite a problem - but baffling...?

just one more mutant/deformity to come from the land of lead toys and faulty cheap products.

remember the "half-Human, half-Goat" thread from a few weeks ago? or the "half-Monkey, half-Pig" one?

remember how about half of ATS posters thought those two creatures resulted from actual cross-species sexual couplings?

you know how educational standards in America are a little higher than they are in rural China (but still not very good?)

well, there you go.

sounds like hypertrichosis, similar to Su Kong Tai Djin, who was clearly very awesome.
