Victor "Larry" Gomez, Gabriel "Danny" Ramos Gomez, Luisa Lilia De Lira Aceves and Jesus Manuel Fajardo Aceves (all Mexico) are four of a family of 19 that span five generations all suffering from the rare condition called Congenital Generalized Hypertrichosis, characterized by excessive facial and torso hair. The women are covered with a light-to-medium coat of hair while the men of the family have thick hair on approximately 98% of their body apart from their hands and feet.
Larry and Danny currently perform in the Mexican National Circus.
All members of the family assisted scientists with the analysis of the gene responsible for CGH and as a result, significant evidence was found for linkage with several markers from the long arm of the X chromosome.
