AFTER enduring 16 gruelling surgeries spanning a year, Bangladesh’s “Tree Man” has finally been cured.

Adul Bajandar became world famous for his rare disease called epidermodysplasia verruciformis — a condition that caused bark-like warts to grow uncontrollably on his hands and feet.

The warts became so bad, the 27-year-old couldn’t use his appendages and would have eventually led to his death.

The successful removal of the growths, which weighed five kilograms, marks the first time the condition has ever been cured.

The string of surgeries began in January 2016, when doctors examined Mr Bajandar to ensure performing the operation would not have any serious implications.

Now, just 12 months later, he can see his hands and feet, and is even able use them to perform simple tasks.

Samanta Lal Sen, plastic surgery co-ordinator at Dhaka Medical College Hospital said Mr Bajandar will still require a few more operations for cosmetic reasons, but the legwork had been done.

“Bajandar’s cure was a remarkable milestone in the history of medical science,” she said.

“We operated on him at least 16 times to remove the warts. The hands and feet are now almost fine.

“He will be discharged within next 30 days after a couple of minor surgeries to perfect the shape of his hands.”

Speaking from his hospital Mr Bajandar said he is thankful for the life changing surgery, which was performed free of charge.

“I never thought I would ever be able to hold my kid with my hands,” he said, showing a bandaged hand.

“Now I feel so much better, I can hold my daughter in my lap and play with her. I can’t wait to go back home.

“I hope the curse won’t return again.”
