Did You Know?
In 1977, a 13 year old child found a tooth growing out of his left foot. This was caused by a rare case of genetic misdirection.
Overlapping teeth are a common disorder these days which can be fixed very easily. But what about a tooth that grows out of your feet? Don’t believe us? Read on!
A 13 year old boy from Lenoir named Doug Pritchard had been saving severe pain in his left foot for several days. When the pain became unbearable he told his father about it, who immediately took him to the doctor.
The doctor was shocked to see that a ‘tooth’ was growing out of his left foot. But the doctor also confirmed that it was actually a gene which was growing out of the wrong place. He later removed it.
This is not a single isolated incident. You would be shocked to know that there have been many cases reported like this around the world where teeth have been discovered to be growing from sensitive places like nose, chest, and in the worst cases, even eyes!!
