Werewolf Sisters

PIC BY UDAY NARAYAN DEOLEKAR / CATERS NEWS - (PICTURED Savita, 23, Monish, 19, and 15-year-old Savitri (C-L-R)) Meet the incredible Sangli sisters, three siblings whose lives have been blighted by one of the rarest conditions in the world - WEREWOLF SYNDROME. Savita, 23, Monish, 19, and 15-year-old Savitri are just like any other young women except their bodies have been covered from head to foot in thick hair. Werewolf syndrome - or hypertricosis universalis - affects just one in a BILLION people but in an incredible quirk of fate all THREE sisters have the condition. Hyperthrichosis is a genetic mutation where cells, that normally switch off hair growth in unusual areas, like the eyelids and forehead, are left switched on. It means the girls have had abnormal hair growth on their bodies and even their faces, affecting their eyebrows, nose and giving them appearance of having a beard. Every day is a battle for the siblings who are now just beginning to bring the condition under control using a special hair removal cream. SEE CATERS COPY.
