There are various rare diseases in the world that are still unknown to many people. Quoted from the Rare Beacon page, a study found around 6,171 rare diseases which are quite unique.
Of this number, 3,510 or 69.9 percent of rare diseases attack the little ones. Meanwhile, around 600 or 11.9 percent of rare diseases only attack adults.

Diseases in The World With Strange

Of all the rare diseases that have been discovered, some have very distinctive symptoms. Quoted from various sources, here are the rarest diseases in the world with ‘strange’ and unique situations.

1. Stoneman syndrome
Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressive (FOP), is a condition that causes connective tissue such as tendons, muscles and ligaments to slowly become bone. As a result, the sufferer’s skin becomes hard like stone, so it is called stone man syndrome.

The development of this disease can start from the neck to the shoulders, which then gradually progresses to the lower body to the feet. People who suffer from this situation will have difficulty opening their mouth, so they cannot eat or chat.

It is known that only one in two million people suffer from this condition. Because it is very rare, Stoneman syndrome can be diagnosed as fibrosis or cancer. Until now, there is still no alternative treatment to treat Stoneman syndrome.

2. Rasmussen’s Encephalitis
Rasmussen Encephalitis, or what is also called chronic focal encephalitis, is a rare disease that is often experienced by children under 10 years old. This disease is characterized by symptoms such as frequent and severe seizures, loss of motor skills and communication, paralysis on one side of the body, inflammation of the brain, and mental decline.

People with Rasmussen’s encephalitis can experience seizures and progressive brain damage during the first 8 to 12 months. Then, he will approach a neurological deficit phase (nerve disorder) which can be permanent.

In Germany, the frequency of Rasmussen encephalitis cases is 2.4 per 10 million people. Although in England, cases are 1.7 in 10 million people.

3. Alkaptonuria
Alkaptonuria is a condition that causes urine to turn black. This happens because the body cannot completely break down the two amino acid protein-forming ingredients, namely tyrosine and phenylalanine.

Finally, there is a buildup of a chemical called homogentisic acid in the body. This is what can then change the color of urine and some body components to become dark.

This disease attacks one in one million people worldwide. People who suffer from this situation have a normal will to live, but their quality of life will be lower.
