Liver pills turn black man white

A black man who was given tablets for liver disease has won £15,000 after they turned him white.



The skin of Tekeste Kahsay, 59, has turned white, except for a patch of skin across his face.

Mr Kahsay, originally from Eritrea but now living in Sweden, says he feels like a black man trapped in a white man's body.

Mr Kahsay was badly injured as he worked at a sawmill in Lidkoping. Blood tests revealed the first stages of liver disease which could have proved fatal.

He was prescribed a drug which saved his liver but had astonishing side effects. His skin became increasingly light until he was white except for a dark "mask" on his face and ears. He has been shunned and attacked because of his strange appearance.

He said: ''This is terrible. I disappeared. I was a black man inside and a white man outside. My self-confidence is gone."

Mr Kahsay won £15,000 from a medical tribunal, The Mirror reports.

The doctor who treated him is reported to be off work with severe psychological problems. In Mr Kahsay's homeland, he is shunned as a leper, as white pigment is considered a sign of the disease.

He added: ''I am a black man and will always be a black man but I don't know who I am. But I have learned a lot about intolerance towards people of another colour.''

This story sounds about as believable to me as the one that said Laura Bush and Teresa Heinz-Kerry had a threesome with a space alien in a hot tub right before the election. That was on the cover of the Weekly World News, and you know what, the picture was pretty convincing, that cut and paste of Teresa's head onto another woman's body was sort of fake-looking, but the Laura Bush cut and paste job was really good, and the space alien looked TOTALLY real. And all of them looked like they were having a blast, I mean, a three way in a hot tub, who wouldn't have a blast?

Couldn't he just get one some other meds?

Poor guy. If he would not have had these black spots noone would have known that he used to be black. Still, even then it must be very weird to have another skin colour.

I find 15.000 dollar not a lot of money for such a traumatising experience.

2000-2007: My "Kim years". My best years as a tennis fan. A few bitter losses but a lot of great matches and great wins. Thank you, Kim Clijsters!

If you had turned 90% white like that wouldn't you want to just continue taking the tablets to get rid of that patch across the face? The way I see it, yes your skin may have changed colour but at least you'll be able to get on with life whereas if your stuck with that little patch you'll have to put up with the public staring and talking for life. I feel so bad for that guy, it's a terrible thing to happen if it has actually happened!

He wouldn't have been able to get $15,000 if it was skin disease.

Makes sense.The pill could have stoped the melanin needed for skin to be balck to be produced and maybe even reverse the process.

$15000 is peanuts, in the US he would be able to get at least 15 mil... it does sound fishy though...

Oh and you guys leave Michael alone, he was traumatized as a child.
