This Woman’s Leg Weighs 60KG and We Cannot Deal

A woman from Bangladesh has been suffering with a potentially-deadly condition in her right leg for 18 years.

Rezia Begum's, is dependent on the care of Dhaka Medical College Hospital staff and her relatives.

The mother-of-two’s leg weighs around 60kg and although it is unclear what Ms Begum's condition is, she is suspected to have elephantiasis.

According to Daily Mail, the cause of Ms Begum's could be caused by roundworms entering the body via mosquitoes.

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