这真的是人类史上一大罕见的奇蹟,一位名叫亚当 (Adam Rainer) 的男子在他的一生中经历了”侏儒”和”巨人”这两个天差地远的身高差距。

亚当在1899年出生于奥地利的格拉茨 (Graz),是个健康、正常的小男孩,但尽管他的父母身高都很正常,在一次大战爆发时 (1914年),亚当却只有约137公分高 (4呎6吋),他因为过于矮小瘦弱而无法被征召至军队中。

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.

但情况在亚当21岁之后便截然不同,当时147公分 (4呎10吋) 在接下来的10年,身高逐渐暴增到215公分 (7呎1吋),而也因为超高的身高而让他脊椎开始严重侧弯。

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.

亚当的极速生长震惊了医学界,医生们便开始研究亚当如此迅速长高的原因,结果发现似乎是他的脑下垂体长了一颗肿瘤,导致大脑分泌过多的生长激素所致。图为亚当和正常男性的身高比较。

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.

为了治疗他这样无法控制的生长情形,医生试图透过手术来切除那颗肿瘤,但成效并不显著,亚当仍然在长高只是速度并没有以往来得快。

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.

亚当在后来的人生中依然不断地在长高,而这也为他的身体带来很多问题,像是脊椎侧弯严重到他只能躺在床上,而他的右眼全盲、左耳失聪。

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.

亚当于51岁时逝世,当时身高是238公分 (7呎10吋),他是人类史上唯一一位在人生中历经侏儒和巨人的男子。

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.

很多人都希望能够快速长高,但应该没有人会羡慕如此强烈对比的人生吧?看来身高还是够用就好…以免老天爷一个不小心回应了你的愿望太多次。
