    The Sun Elephant-legs boy

    Elephant-legs boy

    A BOY of ten is fighting for his life after his legs swelled to "elephant size" — but no one knows how to treat him.

    Vincent Oketch, ten, is thought to have a lymphatic problem that caused the swelling to grow over time.

    He is also believed to suffer from elephantitis and tissue deformity while the swelling has left him with a dislocated hip and broken ankles.

    But tests suggest he also has necrotising fasciitis — which could lead to his legs being amputated to save his life.

    The conflicting diagnosis mean doctors in Kampala, Uganda, are confused as to how to treat the lad.

    Now medic Isaac Osire, who runs an organisation called EDYAC that helps children from poor villages get medical treatment, is appealing to British experts for help to save the boy, from rural Peta.

    He said: “We desperately need a British doctor, or foreign medical expert, who can offer advice about Vincent’s case.

    “The case is extremely complex and we’d like to find out if there is anything that can be done to save his legs.”
