KHULNA, Bangladesh – A Bangladeshi man with a rare condition is growing tree-like “roots” from his hands and feet.

The Daily Mail reported that 25-year-old Abul Bajandar has suffered from a rare skin disorder known as Epidermodysplasia Verruciformis for the past seven years.

The condition is a rare and inherited skin disorder that causes wart-like lesions on the body. Bajandar said he first started noticing the warts as a teenager.

A team of medical experts recently got together to discuss possible treatment options, according to the Daily Mail.

Bajandar was forced out of his job after the tree-like warts started covering his body. He was at one point participating in a circus act to make money.
