"Baummann" in Bangladesh: "Have the doctors asked to separate my hands"

After more than 25 operations and a severe relapse, Bangladesh's "Baummann" wants to have his hands amputated by bark-like growths amputated. "I can not stand the pain anymore and I can not sleep at night, so I asked the doctors to cut my hands off, which gives me at least some relief," Abul Bajandar said. His doctors now want to discuss the next steps.

Bajandar became known worldwide in 2016 as a "tree man". He suffers from extremely rare skin disease Epidermodysplasia verruciformiswhich causes strong barky growths. In a costly but free treatment at the Dhaka University Hospital, the doctors had freed the hands and feet of the former rickshaw driver from a total of five kilograms of excess tissue. After two years of treatment in the hospital, he suffered a relapse and eventually fled the clinic last May.

The warts grew again

He has been treated there since January, after his condition has deteriorated dramatically. Some of the warts on the hands were now several inches long, while the condition of the feet remained largely unchanged. The now 29-year-old father would have liked to be treated abroad, but he lacked the means to do so.

In 2017, the university hospital also treated a then 10-year-old girl with "Baummann syndrome". The doctors were able to remove all growth on the face and ears of the girl, but later they grew even stronger than before. The family then stopped treatment and returned to their village with the girl.
