A 21-year-old Brazilian man has a rare condition that causes the back of his head to look as if it is barely containing his brain, despite the fact that his head looked completely normal 2 years ago.

The man’s scalp pattern started to change, growing thicker in irregular places, causing bizarre folds of thicker skin across the back of his head, resembling the pattern of a brain.

The condition – known as “cutis verticis gyrata” – does not seem to cause any other symptoms.

Now we only need to find out why basketball player Al Harrington‘s head looks like a wet towel.
