Huang Chuncai receives treatment in his ward after the largest of Huang's tumours, which weighed 15kg (33lbs), was removed last month in a risky operation at a hospital in Guangzhou, southern China's Guangdong province, August 22, 2007. Huang, a 31-year-old native from a remote village in China's southern province of Hunan, says he is relieved after a part of his facial tumours, which originally weighed about 23kg, was removed. Yet doctors say the surgery has caused him to lose his balance. The disease, called Neurofibromatosis, is a genetic disorder of the nervous system that primarily affects the development and growth of neural cell tissues, according to the U.S. National Institutes of Health.

The disease destroys nerves around the eye and sufferers cannot shut or blink their eyes, which will then leave them vulnerable to constant infections.
