World's tallest teenager with genetic disorder can’t stop growing

Meet the towering teenager on course to become the world’s tallest man.

Broc Brown, a 19-year-old from Michigan, United States, has previously been named the world’s tallest teenager and currently measures 7ft 8ins.

He was the official Guinness World Record holder before he turned 19, becoming too old for the 18-and-below classification.

His incredible growth is a result of a genetic disorder known as Sotos Syndrome, or cerebral gigantism, which he was diagnosed with at the age of five.

“It's a genetic disorder and there's nothing that can stop him from growing - I don't know if he will ever stop,” explained his mother Darci.

The record-breaking teenager, who is growing at the rate of six inches a year, is on course to become the world’s tallest man. The current record is held by Turkish farmer Sultan Kosen who stands at 8ft 2ins.
