19 year-old Malee Duangdee from eastern Thailand is the world’s tallest female. Towering head and shoulders above her parents, this giant teenager is a whopping 6ft 10 in and she could still be growing.
Medics found a brain tumour that was pressing on a nerve. This caused a hormone imbalance which meant she never stopped growing - and now she has to have an injection that costs £2,000 every three months to control her growth.
As a result of her tumour, Malee has lost her sight. She suffered a lot of bullying while in school, but seems to be more comfortable now after leaving school.
