Indische Ärzte haben nicht weniger als 232 Zähne aus dem Mundraum von Ashik Gavai entfernt. War ein seltener, gutartiger Tumor und jetzt hat der gute Ashik nur noch 28 Beißer, insgesamt hatte der junge Gentleman also nicht weniger als 260 Zähne im Mund. Holy Crap!
Ashik Gavai was brought in with a swelling in his right jaw, Dr Sunanda Dhiware, head of Mumabi's JJ Hospital's dental department, told the BBC. The teenager had been suffering for 18 months and travelled to the city from his village after local doctors failed to identify the cause of the problem. Doctors have described his condition as "very rare" and "a world record".
"Ashik's malaise was diagnosed as a complex composite odontoma where a single gum forms lots of teeth. It's a sort of benign tumour," Dr Dhiware said. […] Ashik now has 28 teeth.
