    Boy with giant hands gets pioneering surgery after being dubbed 'the devil' and excluded from school
    • 16:14, 7 August 2015
    • By Natalie Corner
    Tense Channel 5 documentary follows eight-year-old Kaleem as he travels thousands of miles to get his hands reduced in size

    Kaleem goes in to hospital for life-changing surgery
    A young boy is banned from going to school because his fellow classmates think he is the "devil".

    Kaleem suffers from a rare medical condition called macrodactyly that means he has giant-sized hands.

    The eight-year-old has been excluded from school and cast out in his local village in India because he is believed to be "the child of the devil".

    Bizarrely Kaleem's own uncle believes that because his mother visited latrines when she was pregnant with Kaleem that it could have infected him with "demons".

    He says: "Wherever you go in the world latrines have all the demons. Because that is where they live and breed in the filth."

    The Channel 5 documentary, The Boy with the Giant Hands, follows the youngster and his family as they prep for life-changing surgery.

    Kaleem is more than apprehensive but faced with a future of illiteracy and constant bullying it appears it is the only chance for him.

    As he spends his days playing with a rubber tyre by himself Kaleem says: "I don't go to school because the teacher says the other kids get scared when they look at me."

    Eight-year-old Kaleem's hands weigh eight kilograms each and measure 13 inches from the base of his palm to the end of his middle finger.
    The family travel thousands of miles to visit a leading reconstructive surgeon in southern India, who is convinced he can improve the function in Kaleem's hands.

    The doctors have to work against the clock during the complicated surgery to manoeuvre between fatty tissues and swollen nerves in Kaleem's hands.

    The invasive surgery is risky for the malnourished eight-year-old, as he has to build up his strength so he can get his hands reduced to a regular size.




    The documentary sees Kaleem get his fingers shortened but the recovery could take months before the youngster notices a difference.

    It's down to the team to help Kaleem get through the intensive post-rehabilitation and convince the local villagers and the school the young boy is not the "devil child".

    Will he get to return to school and receive greater acceptance?

    Interesting pectoralis muscle development. His left pec is larger than his right. He probably uses his left side more often and you can see that in the picture of him using a cup. He shows that pec flyes do indeed work, buy you also need a press to fill out the pecs laterally.

    On the other hand, he may not be able to fulfill his life long dream of being a proctologist

    Give him a break. The kid wrote the article himself with a special keyboard.

    The keyboard is the size of a coffee table.

    When he turns 16 and tries to get to second base with a girl, it may be awkward.

    I wonder why these kind of deformities are so prevalent in India.
