Human Horn is extremely rare, but rare cases do exist .
Animal Horn like growth arising from human body though sounds surprising but do exist.

Horns can arise on human body . yes it is true.
Very few cases were reported in worldwide about existence of horn.
whenever human horn found,mainly found on scalp, face, fingers.

But horn arising from abdomen is rarest.

In this case this man developed horn like projection(growth) from his abdomen.It was growing painlessly, slowly over many years until he visited us for a check up.
This rare condition is called sebaceous horn or cutaneous horn.

I had only read about this in my medical book, and saw picture of it. But never experienced any case live.
May be this case was first and last in my life, as these cases are very rare.
This cutaneous horns are non cancerous.
exact cause of its growth is unknown.As it is hard like nail, can be cut with a razor.
ideally to be removed surgically with proper closure of wound.can be done under local anesthesia.
Hope all liked this rarest case.
