A strange condition has made 30-year-old man, Wang Tianfang from China look like a four-year-old toddler.

According to odditycentral.com, the man’s mother, Chu Xiaoping said his growth came to a halt when he was between 2 and 3-years-old. As a matter of fact, he was born in 1987 which makes him 30 this year. However, beard and other masculine features that any 30-year-old man would have, are totally nonexistent as far as Wang Tianfang is concerned.

Wang Tianfang is 80-cm-high and her mother whose source of survival is to pick tea leaves from the mountains and working as a cleaner on part-time basis has remained defiant, despite advice by friends to abandon his son and enjoy life.

Chu Xiaoping, single mother who apparently enjoys caring for her son told newsmen that doctors had predicted that Wang Tianfang would not live up to age 30, but that obviously has not been the case.

Her main motivation now as she cares for her son is not to see him recover from the condition he is suffering from. The woman has admitted that “I know he’ll never recover, that’s impossible, but I just want him to live on, I don’t want him to die.”

It is not yet clear what kind of condition the man is suffering from, the cause and if there are any remedies at all available for him.

Should Wang Tianfang recover from that condition, her mother will obviously be the happiest woman in the world.
