The case was reported by officials at Hospital Universitario de Santa Maria who said that the condition started when the unidentified man was 19 years of age. He is suffering from a rare condition known as cutis verticis gyrata for which there is no cure.

Cutis verticis gyrata is a rare, benign condition, which has been linked in previous research to cognitive disabilities or other brain-related disorders. However in this particular case, the patient does not have any neurological or psychological problems.
