THE man with the largest hand in the world will be looking forward to a normal life after undergoing radical plastic surgery at Shanghai No. 9 People’s Hospital.
Liu Hua, a 24-year-old Jiangsu Province native, was born with a left thumb, index and middle finger much larger than normal.
Liu was suffering from a rare disease called macrodactyly, a birth defect in which toes or fingers are abnormally large.
The cause of the disease is unknown but bone and soft tissue grows at an extraordinary rate.
