    Rare condition makes scalp look like brain

    This is not a photo of a brain bulging out of someone's head.

    Doctors reported in the New England Journal of Medicine that they diagnosed a case of a rare condition called cutis verticus gyrata, which causes the folds in the scalp to form - specifically, "ridges and furrows resembling the brain's surface," write Dr. Karen Regina Rosso Schons and Andre Avelino Costa Beber of Hospital Universitario de Santa Maria in Brazil.

    These scalp changes started showing up two years before doctors saw the 21-year-old patient. He didn't display symptoms of neurological or psychiatric conditions, but he did have intellectual or learning impairment.

    Doctors did not attempt an intervention because "the patient had no associated disorders and the condition did not bother him cosmetically."

    After a year, the patient's presentation of his condition was the same, according to the report.

    I guess so but I'd probably think the guy has fucked up fat rolls on his head.

    At least it would make for a rad halloween costume, just shave your head and slap on some pink paint.

    I wonder if you could hide things in it


    Like if you're out in the desert you could store water in the folds then get it out with a straw

    If your balls look like that you might want to get it checked out.

    Yep. It's him. I used to read his books when I was little.

    And on topic, I feel so bad for this guy. It looks scary.
