Hairy Folk

The Burmese family pictured below is known to have produced hirsute offspring for three generations. Congenital Hypertrichsis Lanuginosa is transmitted as an autosomal dominant and consequently, there is a fifty percent chance that the children of those affected will be as hairy as their parent. The hair covers the entire body except the feet and palms. Associated anomalies are a shortage of teeth and, occasionally, mental retardation. Theodor and his father also had this congenital condition. Theodor’s condition was accompanied by partial adontia–he had only four teeth.
