Tree man - Epidermodysplasia verruciformis
Dede Kosawa is one of the world's most extraordinary people. He lives in a remote village in Indonesia with his two children, trying to care for them.
Dede, a former fisherman, has an incredible skin condition: he has root like structures growing out of his body - branches that can grow up to 5cm a year and which protrude from his hands and feet, and welts covering his whole body.
Check out the VIDEO.
And another VIDEO about his diagnosis and possible treatment.
