Brenden Adams - 7 feet 4.5 inches (224.8 cm)


Brenden Adams is 7 feet 4.5 inches tall. He is considered the only person who has grown so fast and so big because of an altered chromosome 12.

Brenden Adams was born on September 20, 1995. He was born at Kittitas Valley Community Hospital and grew up in Ellensburg, Washington. His birthweight was an average 7 pounds, 3 ounces and measured at 19.5 inches long. The Tallest Man Fact 2 Because of the teen’s neverending growth, he was diagnosed with a benign brain tumor, a bleeding disorder, a heart disorder, and athritis in his overgrown joints that started affecting him between the ages of two and eight. With of the fear of leukemia, doctors went in and performed a bone-marrow biopsy so that they could study his cells. To their suprise, the biopsy unveiled that the teen was suffering from a chromosomal disorder that causes him to grow at an accelerated speeds. It is said that only two percent of the population has this “balanced chromosomal inversion”. What happens is that some of the genetic material gets rearranged when the cells divide during the earliest stages of developing. The teen’s 12th chromosome was affected and altered which affects a person’s growth.

The World’s Tallest Teen, Brenden Adams is not only tall, but he physically and visually is different. His mother says that he constantly needs his team of doctors and visits them frequently to maintain his growth and other physical body changes. The teen has abnormally huge joints, fatty tumors, and extra teeth.

He attends Morgan Middle School in Ellensburg, Washington and is a member of the football team. Even though the teen loves the game, it is said that he can’t participate the way he would like to due to health problems. The teen says, “I can’t run anymore,” adding, “I can’t be active like I used to.”

Although the teen feels guilt when it comes to the medical bills that his condition entails, his mother says, “No one has his condition in the world, but then no one in the world has his heart of gold,” and adds, “People are kind, people are generous, but I don’t believe there’s anyone with a heart like his.”

The Guinness Book of World Records names the world’s tallest teen, Brendan Adams as the tallest teen-age boy in the world.

Brenden excessive growth was successfully stopped in August 2008.
