Op to ease 2.33m-tall man's growing pains
Myanmar patient here for risky surgery to remove tumour causing growth spurt
It is no fun being one of the tallest men in the world.
Towering at 2.33m, Mr Win Zaw Oo, from Myanmar, cannot buy clothes off the shelf and attracts curious stares or rude remarks wherever he goes.
Worst of all for "Big Zaw" - as he is known back home - is that he has not stopped growing, even at the age of 36.
He is now in Singapore for what he hopes will be a life-saving operation to remove a tumour in his head that is the root cause of his growth spurt.
