A young girl was abandoned by her family after hair grew all over her body, causing her to look like a cat.
Six-year-old Zhao Xinrui, suffers from a rare skin disease that has left her with soft black hair covering her back.
The condition has left doctors baffled.
The girl has been nicknamed “cat girl,” and her distraught mother is said to have abandoned her because of the condition, which began as a small patch of discolored skin on her back.
At first, doctors in Changshan, China, thought that the skin was a birthmark, but are now perplexed.
Xinrui now needs urgent treatment to remove the hair that covers her entire back, and is beginning to grow on her arms and face.
The girl’s grandmother is trying to raise money to pay for the treatment. The girl said that she wants to be cured so that she could wear summer clothes and even a swimsuit like her friends.
