Chinese ‘Unicorn Woman’ Grows Gigantic Horn In Middle Of Her Head


An elderly Chinese woman has been dubbed “the unicorn woman” due to an abnormal growth on her head that looks like a large horn. Liang Xiuzhen started growing something that resembled a “black mole” on her head around eight years ago, according to her son Wang Chaojun.




The 87-year-old, was left stunned when two years ago it gave way to a finger-sized horn-like mass. Xiuzhen accidentally “broke” that small horn in February - and her current, much larger, horn - which is currently 13cm long -began growing rapidly in its place.


“Now the horn hurts my mother and prevents her from sleeping. It also bleeds from time to time,” said Chaojun.



Doctors diagnosed the so-called unicorn horn as “cornu cutaneum” (cutaneous horn), a keratinous skin tumour that has the appearance of a horn. Often small and benign, the growth can in some cases be much larger and malignant.

The woman has reportedly been to several hospitals and clinics, with none of them able to explain what she is suffering from.
