These Parents Were Left Distraught When Their Children All Developed Werewolf Syndrome

As soon as a baby is born, it’s only normal for parents to worry like crazy. But when 16 infants began to sprout hair all over their bodies, doctors quickly realized something was genuinely wrong. You see, the little ones had symptoms of what’s colloquially known as “werewolf syndrome” – and the strange diagnosis left their loved ones devastated.

Now scientists refer to such a condition as hypertrichosis, and it causes hair to grow abnormally on the body. However, it can occur within a defined area, known as localized hypertrichosis, or it can spark growth across a person’s anatomy. For such a thing to happen naturally, a child would have to be born with a genetic mutation.
