9. Congenital Analgesia [Insensitivity To Pain]
Congenital insensitivity to pain, also known as congenital analgesia, is one or more rare conditions in which a person cannot feel and has never felt physical pain. It is common for people with the condition to die in childhood due to injuries or illnesses going unnoticed. Because children with the disorder cannot feel pain, they may not respond to problems, thus being at a higher risk of more severe diseases. Children with this condition often suffer oral cavity damage both in and around the oral cavity (such as having bitten off the tip of their tongue) or fractures to bones.
8. Savant syndrome [Abilities To Literally Anything]
Savant syndrome is a condition in which someone with significant mental disabilities demonstrates certain abilities far in excess of average. The skills at which savants excel are generally related to memory. This may include rapid calculation, artistic ability, map making, or musical ability. Usually just one special skill is present. The condition is rare. One estimate is that it affects about one in a million people. Cases of female savants are even less common than those of males. The first medical account of the condition was in 1783. Among those with autism between 1 in 10 to 200 have savant syndrome to some degree.

5. Hypohidrotic Ectodermal Dysplasia [The Vampire Disorder]
Hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia is one of about 150 types of ectodermal dysplasia in humans. Before birth, these disorders result in the abnormal development of structures including the skin, hair, nails, teeth, and sweat glands. Most people with hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia have a reduced ability to sweat (hypohidrosis) because they have fewer sweat glands than normal or their sweat glands do not function properly. Hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia is associated with distinctive facial features including a prominent forehead, thick lips, and a flattened bridge of the nose. Additional features of this condition include thin, wrinkled, and dark-colored skin around the eyes; chronic skin problems such as eczema; and a bad-smelling discharge from the nose.
4. Polymelia [Octopus Peoples]
Polymelia also known as hydra syndrome is a birth defect involving limbs, in which the affected individual has more than the usual number of limbs. In humans and most land-dwelling animals, this means having five or more limbs. The extra limb is most commonly shrunken and/or deformed. Sometimes small extra legs between the normal legs are caused by the body axis forking in the dipygus condition. Many mythological creatures like dragons, winged horses, and griffins have six limbs: four legs and two wings. The dragon’s science is discussed in Dragons: A Fantasy Made Real.
3. Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva [Stone Man Syndrome]
Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva is an extremely rare connective tissue disease. The disease is caused by a mutation of the body’s repair mechanism, which causes fibrous tissue to be ossifiedspontaneously or when damaged. In many cases, injuries can cause joints to become permanently frozen in place. Surgical removal of the extra bone growths has been shown to cause the body to “repair” the affected area with even more bone. For unknown reasons, children born with FOP have deformed big toes, possibly missing a joint or simply presenting with a notable lump at the minor joint. There is no cure or approved treatment for FOP. Attempts to surgically remove the bone result in explosive bone growth.
2. Hypertrichosis [Werewolf Syndrome]
Hypertrichosis is an abnormal amount of hair growth over the body. The two distinct types of hypertrichosis are generalized hypertrichosis, which occurs over the entire body, and localized hypertrichosis, which is restricted to a certain area. The excess growth of hair occurs in areas of the skin with the exception of androgen-dependent hair of the pubic area, face, and axillary regions. Several circus sideshow performers in the 19th and early 20th centuries, such as Julia Pastrana, had hypertrichosis. Many of them worked as freaks and were promoted as having distinct human and animal traits.

1. Foreign Accent Syndrome
Foreign accent syndrome is a rare medical condition in which patients develop speech patterns that are perceived as a foreign accent that is different from their native accent, without having acquired it in the perceived accent’s place of origin. Foreign accent syndrome usually results from a stroke, but can also develop from head trauma, migraines or developmental problems. Despite an unconfirmed news report in 2010 that a Croatian speaker had gained the ability to speak fluent German after emergence from a coma, there has been no verified case where a patient’s foreign language skills have improved after a brain injury.
