Abuja - A toddler has left doctors perplexed after he allegedly "developed" into a 25-year-old man due to a rare condition.
According to Naij, the boy developed public hair, sexual urges and a deep voice following a rapid increase in his testosterone levels.
The 1-year-old boy, identified only as Akash, was taken to a hospital and revealed to have a rare condition called precocious puberty which leads to sexual development at an early age.
