這真的是人類史上一大罕見的奇蹟,一位名叫亞當 (Adam Rainer) 的男子在他的一生中經歷了”侏儒”和”巨人”這兩個天差地遠的身高差距。

亞當在1899年出生於奧地利的格拉茨 (Graz),是個健康、正常的小男孩,但儘管他的父母身高都很正常,在一次大戰爆發時 (1914年),亞當卻只有約137公分高 (4呎6吋),他因為過於矮小瘦弱而無法被徵召至軍隊中。

Rainer was  born in Graz, Austria, in 1899. He was a normal, healthy child by all accounts. Despite being born to parents of normal height, by the time that World War I broke out, Rainer stood at just 4 feet, 6 inches. Recruiters told him he was too short and weak to join the army.

但情況在亞當21歲之後便截然不同,當時147公分 (4呎10吋) 在接下來的10年,身高逐漸暴增到215公分 (7呎1吋),而也因為超高的身高而讓他脊椎開始嚴重側彎。

Everything changed for Rainer by the age of 21. Over the next 10 years, Rainer (who was 4'10'' at the time) would grow to an astonishing 7'1" by the time he turned 31. It was also during this time when Rainer began to develop severe curvature of the spine.

亞當的極速生長震驚了醫學界,醫生們便開始研究亞當如此迅速長高的原因,結果發現似乎是他的腦下垂體長了一顆腫瘤,導致大腦分泌過多的生長激素所致。圖為亞當和正常男性的身高比較。

Rainer's growth spurt took the medical community by surprise. Doctors examined Rainer  to try to determine the source of his wild growth. The conclusion they reached was that a tumor on Rainer's pituitary gland was leading to an overproduction of growth hormones. Here you can see Rainer's height compared to a normal-sized man.

為了治療他這樣無法控制的生長情形,醫生試圖透過手術來切除那顆腫瘤,但成效並不顯著,亞當仍然在長高只是速度並沒有以往來得快。

In an attempt to cure him of his uncontrollable growth, physicians operated on Rainer's pituitary gland to remove the tumor. They were only partially successful. He was still growing, but now at a much slower pace.

亞當在後來的人生中依然不斷地在長高,而這也為他的身體帶來很多問題,像是脊椎側彎嚴重到他只能躺在床上,而他的右眼全盲、左耳失聰。

Rainer continued to grow for the remainder of his life, but was plagued by numerous health problems. Eventually, the curvature of his spine become so bad that he was confined to his bed. Rainer also became blind in his right eye, and suffered hearing loss in his left ear.

亞當於51歲時逝世,當時身高是238公分 (7呎10吋),他是人類史上唯一一位在人生中歷經侏儒和巨人的男子。

Rainer passed away at the age of 51 and at a height of  7'10". He is the only person in human history who has been able to call himself a dwarf and a giant in the same lifetime.

很多人都希望能夠快速長高,但應該沒有人會羨慕如此強烈對比的人生吧?看來身高還是夠用就好…以免老天爺一個不小心回應了你的願望太多次。
