Dwarfism is a genetic or medical condition in which a person is born and grows to become short in height. A common known cause of dwarfism in people us known to be a genetic mutation which affects bone growth. While gigantism is a rare condition which caused abnormal growth. The changes are notable through height as well as girth. This condition arises when the pituitary gland produces too much growth hormone. It is usually believed that people only suffer from either dwarfism or gigantism, but not both abnormalities at one go.
But one man known as Adam Rainer was the only person to have been recorded in history to have been both a dwarf and a giant. Born in 1899 in Graz Austria, Adam Rainer was believed to be suffering from acromegaly, a condition which always results to both dwarfism and gigantism. He lived on well in his life until he passed on 4th March 1950 while in Vienna Austria.
