Due to a rare genetic disorder sunlight affects their skin like acid

In Pakistan, three sisters and their brother were born with a very rare genetic disorder, causing sunlight is deadly to them. Due to ultraviolet radiation, their skin begins to melt, and almost covered with sores.

Similarly, the UV light affects their eyes - all four of us almost went blind. 26-year-old Javid, 19-year-old Mary, 17-year-old Sobia and 9-year-old Alisa also suffer from destruction of the tissues of the nose. This genetic anomaly is called xeroderma pigmentosum.

People with such diseases are often called "moon children", as they are forced to sit in dark rooms and leaving the house only at night. In past centuries, people with this disease may considered vampires. The disease is so dangerous that, until 20 years of age survives at least 40% of patients and only a few can overcome the threshold of 40 years. It occurs so rarely in the literature over the last century is described by only a few hundred cases.

When a small child with pigment pigmentosum, first received exposure to sunlight. he has formed a strong sunburn. With age, the skin and the lips appear rough scales, can develop skin cancer. The eyes often become inflamed and ulcerate, one soon loses sight, if you do not wear safety glasses. Brother and his three sisters live in a small village in the province of Sindh and the locals are afraid even to approach to their house, because I think they are very infectious.

Their parents 48-year-old taxi driver Hussain Sindhi books and 40-year-old Mahin Naseem spent all our savings to find a cure, but of course, that no one and nothing could help their children. The cure does not exist yet.
