Tree Man

32- year - Old Dede, an Indonesian villager, is dubbed the " Tree Man." He has woody growths on his hands that make him unfit for any kind of work except to feature as a "freak".
Anthony Gaspari, a dermatologist from the University of Maryland examined Dede as part of the documentary.
He believes the massive growths are a combination of the human papilloma virus, which causes warts, and a genetic disorder that means his immune system is too weak to fight them off.
