Mom Of Two Leg Weighs 132lbs Due To A Pathetic Condition That Can Take Her Life(Photos)


A woman leg has swelled to gigantic extents in a possibly savage condition. Rezia Begum's, 40, right leg
weighs around 132lbs (60kg) because of suspected elephantiasis.

The mother-of-two, from Bangladesh, has endured with the condition as far back as the introduction of her second little girl 18 years prior.Although it is unclear how Ms Begum's condition affects her, she says she is now dependent on the support of her relatives.

Ms Begum said: 'I was like any other normal woman but now I'm a burden on my poor family.'

Although she is being cared for at Dhaka Medical College Hospital in Bangladesh, she is yet to begin treatment. 

Surgery and additional tests are required before therapy can start.

The cause of Ms Begum's condition is unclear, however, previous reports of other cases revealed the disorder can be caused by roundworms entering the body via mosquitoes.

If the swelling spreads from the legs to the abdomen, the condition can be fatal.

Elephantiasis affects around 120 million people globally.

It is characterised by the massive enlargement of an area of the body due to obstruction of the lymphatic system.

This results in the accumulation of fluids in the affected part of the body.
