Man With Head Upside Down

Man With Head Upside Down

A Brazilian man who was born with an upside down head and severely deformed limbs and defied all odds to become successful and independent in life has now written a book about his life's challenging journey.

Claudio Viera de Oliveria, 40, was born with arthrogryposis which caused his head to be upside down and facing the wrong way. People with this rare condition have their body joints fused together.

Oliveria learned to use a pen with his mouth to type words and also use a computer mouse or a phone with the help of his lips. He successfully completed his education and is an accountant. Now Oliveria often gives inspirational speeches.
