WHEN WORLD'S SHORTEST WOMAN MET WORLD'S TALLEST MAN

In an unusual and delighted view, the world’s tallest living man Sultan Kosen met world’s shortest living woman Jyoti Amge. The two met in Egypt reportedly to promote tourism to Egypt.

He has since grown taller. The main reason for his height is caused by a condition called pituitary gigantism, where the brain produces an abnormal amount of growth hormone from the pituitary gland.
