1. Sultan Kosen—8’3
Sultan Kosen is the current record-holder for the world’s tallest person, standing in at a whopping 8’3. But the Turkey-born part-time farmer wasn’t always the tallest person wherever he went. He grew at a fairly normal rate until the age of 10; after that, his height skyrocketed until he was well over six feet and counting.
Eventually, when his height became too much, he was forced to quit his schooling, and had to rely on crutches to get around. His rapid growth condition was due to a tumor affecting his pituitary gland.
There was an attempt to remove the tumor in 2008, but the procedure failed to halt Kosen’s ever-increasing growth rate. Another procedure was performed in 2012, but it wasn’t easy. Special equipment had to be flown in from Sweden because of Kosen’s size. Fortunately, the procedure proved to be successful, as Kosen hasn’t grown since then.
