A photo of a human hand that has gone viral on social media has left users heartbroken.

Hundreds of users initially gave interesting comments on this viral photo on social media saying that this person must have seen the Pakistan cricket team playing cricket and must have chewed all their nails in panic, while some called it a Photoshop masterpiece.

But soon the truth of this picture was revealed, neither the man was nervously biting his nails nor was the picture a photoshopped masterpiece.

Rather, this person is suffering from a rare disease called Anonychia congenital.

Ononychia cangenura is a condition that affects the fingernails and toenails. All fingernails and toenails are missing in such patients.

This absence of nails is noticeable from birth.

There is currently no effective treatment for this medical condition. However, artificial nails seem to be the only option as there is a need for study and research on this disease.
