A special team of doctors in Chennai are monitoring a baby boy, who they say has a rare medical condition which they describe as "Spontaneous Human Combustion Syndrome."

This Baby Has Rare Condition That Sets Him on Fire

A seven-day-old baby with a rare medical condition which literally sets him on fire has been admitted to the Kilpauk Medical College and Hospital in Chennai.

The Chennai Metro Rail Limited, in association with other state agencies, has successfully transplanted a huge banyan tree, over 120-years-old, which was uprooted in the recent rains in the premises of the Government Kilpauk Medical College and Hospital in Chennai.

Three-month-old Rahul, who is admitted in the Kilpauk Medical College Hospital (KMCH) in this Tamil Nadu capital with 10 degree burn injuries because of a condition called spontaneous human combustion (SHC), is stable, doctors said on Saturday.

In a bizarre incident, two patients died in the fire at the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of Chennai's Kilpauk medical college hospital.
