Below is a list of the world's biggest human body parts…
World’s Biggest Head
Sain Mumtaz has the most extraordinary big head – but what is causing its extreme growth and how Sain might be treated is a total mystery. This terribly disfigured man lives around 100km from the Pakistani city of Lahore on the road to the town of Narowal.
Sain was told as a child that he suffered from Proteus syndrome – the same condition as Joseph Merrick, the original Elephant Man.
