The nails instead of hair, or a mystical disease of young American women
Shane Aysom - a young American,has become the victim of an extremely rare and terrible disease. Thus, instead of hairs on the skin began to increase her fingernails. It sounds impossible, but with Shane was just that - her body is almost entirely covered with small horny growths that resemble by nature fingernails.
Shane Aysom (Shanyna Isom) lives in Baltimore (Baltimore), she was 28 years old in 2012 ,when her symptoms of a strange and incomprehensible nature emerged. So, on the whole body suddenly Aysom hatch through the skin strange horny growths on structure resembling nails. Believe what had happened it was impossible - Shane experienced many anxious hours, and doctors, to which she immediately asked for help, they did not immediately realize what is at stake.
Meanwhile, women continued to tear the skin and break out all the new nails, which for some reason began to grow in place of conventional hairs. Alas, it was impossible to stop, and Shane had to stay in hospital in a rather serious condition.
Later it turned out that such a reaction was caused by her steroids ,which she took after in 2009 she suffered a severe attack of allergic asthma.
From what only did not treat doctors Shane - from a staph infection, eczema and other skin diseases, but upryamyeogti all continued to grow, and women suffering only intensified.
As a result, doctors have come to the conclusion that ` Shane too much kozhi` ,that constantly flakes off and replaced up to 12 times faster than normal. As a result, the skin does not have time to ` dyshat`. However, to help women and doctors can not - a statement of the reasons for the disease, as well as self diagnosis in this case do not warrant treatment.
Meanwhile, Shane started with difficulty to move - now she can move, only relying on a stick, Ae suffering become permanent. her skin reminds one big dry scab with strange sprouting spines, which is its weird nails. Until recently, it was full of optimism and cheerfulness student, but after 2009 Shane`s life has turned into hell. Doctors can not monitor the status of Shane - they have a test and ascertain the symptoms as they appear.
Shane says that sometimes it seems that the disease is - just a nightmare to wake up and stoittolko he will evaporate. Alas, in the case of Shane have to admit - this is not a nightmare, it is her reality.To date, other patients with similar symptoms have been identified worldwide.
There is one negative point - a strange disease almost did not let the world family of Shane - they just have to pay huge medical bills, because the insurance company refused to compensate them for the costs.
In order to pay for the treatment ,which it still offered the buyout and was incredibly expensive, Shane opened his own foundation, but it is still very much doubt that will be able to collect the necessary sum. And she hopes that by its disease in the near future there is a cure, and when future victims of an insidious disease do not fall into such a vice, in which it landed. However,at this moment other documented cases of this disease is not - in case American Shane Aysom unique. Today Shane do the scientists from the Institute of Johns Hopkins, relatives and herself Shane once again believe in the victory.
All hope of a young woman on her family - this family rallied around unhappy and do not give it to fall spirit. But the insurance system of the country, alas, stalled on the strange case of unexplored disease. Alas, to reverse this situation Aysom Shane and her family have been unable to, but because of the huge bills of clinics and centers (in 2012, they called the sum of $ 250,000) is still a heavy burden laid on the shoulders of families.
