Paris (AFP) Cro-Magnon man had a face covered in lumps including a large one on his forehead likely benign tumours caused by a genetic disease, according to a team of French researchers in new findings published Friday.
The skeleton of Cro-Magnon 1, a male Homo sapiens dating back 28,000 years, was discovered in 1868 in the Eyzies cave in Frances southwestern Dordogne region.
To mark 150 years since the discovery of the bones, a team of researchers including anthropologist Philippe Charlier reexamined the remains.
At the end of their investigation, we proposed a new diagnosis: he had suffered from a type of neurofibromatosis, Charlier told AFP.
Neurofibromatosis is a genetic disease which can cause benign tumours to develop in the nervous system, and also spots or areas of pigmentation on the skin.
The teams findings will be published Friday in the medical journal The Lancet.
Cro-Magnon mans skull has a lesion on the forehead which corresponds to the presence of a neurofibroma (a benign nerve sheath tumor) which has eroded the bone, Charlier said.
His left ear canal was also damaged, presumably also by a tumour that had grown, he added.
Equipped with this diagnosis, we have made a realistic reconstruction of the face of this middle-aged man, taking into account his pathology.

Wasn’t he in The Hobbit?
Where is the picture of Moochelle the wookie?
This has a lot in common with “climate science”.
Shouldn’t he be black?
And they get Grant money for this.....lots of it...
Them’s some serious nose hairs.
Its Uncle Leonard!
And they guy in the photo was probably 24 at the time.
>>Shouldnt he be black?
It’s ok that he’s white because they added the warts.
He’s just one guy. I’ll hold out until they find a real hotty.
Im going to guess he didnt reproduce. But I guess hes extinct so there you go.
That’s right, he should be very darkly complected. Light skin only appeared 6-8,000 years ago. Quite right.

You’re thinking about Jesus......

Oh, they're talking about the scourge of CIS. Crappy Irish Skin.
