a six-year-old thai girl supatra sasuphan, nicknamed nat, has the very rare ambras syndrome, or congenital hypertrichosis – meaning she has excessive hair covering her face and parts of her body (yes, like a wolf). there are fewer than 40 cases documented worldwide of people with this genetic condition after it was first described in austria in 1648.
according to dermnetnz.org, the cause of hypertrichosis is unknown. congenital hypertrichosis is believed to be a genetic disorder that is inherited or occurs as a result of spontaneous mutation.
