The Brazilian boy was born at 6lb, 6oz, but can’t stop eating.


Doctors believe the boy, Misael, may be suffering from Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS). This rare genetic condition is characterized by a constant hunger and desire to heat, which can lead to not only dangerous weight gain but also to learning difficulties and reduced muscle tone.

People who suffer from PWS are also likely to have behavioral problems, such as temper tantrums or stubbornness.[su_csky_ad]
