Porphyria "The Vampire Disease". A rare hereditary blood disease, which causes the inability of the body to reproduce heme, the component of hemoglobin, which is the major component or red blood. Lack of heme causes a porphyriac to experience blood cravings, causing the sufferer of this disease to attack people or animals for their blood in desparate attempt to replace the heme their body could not generate.

Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP), sometimes referred to as Stone Man Syndrome, is an extremely rare disease of the connective tissue. A mutation of the body's repair mechanism causes fibrous tissue (including muscle, tendon, and ligament) to be ossified when damaged. In many cases, injuries can cause joints to become permanently frozen in place. Surgical removal of the extra bone growths has been shown to cause the body to "repair" the affected area with more bone.

Prodigies by James G. Mundie - Portrait of Lazarus and Joannes Baptista Colloredo
The Italian Colloredo brothers were favorites at the court of Charles I of England. Lazarus was a handsome & popular man, but his attached brother was little more than an unconscious dangling entity. Lazarus would walk the streets with his voluminous cloak draped over his brother so as not to cause unwanted attention. At other times, Lazarus would invite spectators to pinch his brother to hear him cry out with involuntary nonverbal protestations. This cruel behavior was a popular pastime.

Holoprosencephaly (HPE) refers to a range of problems involving the malformation of the brain and upper face along the mid line. This is extremely rare in live births (~1 in 15,000), but is more commonly detected in early pregnancies (1 in 250); however almost all affected fetuses are miscarried. The cause of these deformities is thought to be due to mutations in the SHH gene
