Tallest Teenagers Around The World


Elisany Silva from Brazil

The 14 year-old Brazilian teen with 6’9″ tall. Her height hasn’t come without problems. She had to leave school as she could no longer safely sit down in the school bus. Her parents don’t have enough money to determine the cause of or treat her inordinate growth. A medical specialist speculates that she has a rare disease called Gigantismo, a condition that causes the brain to over produce growth hormones. But Elisany wants to make the best of her size, explaining that she is interested in modeling. She will soon make her runway debut at a bridal fashion show in Belem, Brazil.

Malee Duangdee from Thailand

She is 17 year-old and 6 feet 10 inches tall. Her stature is due to a tumour on her pituitary gland which makes her body produce too much growth hormone. Malee had two unsuccessful operations to remove the tumour and her only hope is a tumour-shrinking drug which her father, a poorly paid labourer, cannot afford.

  12. I noticed that only 1 Latin girl was mentioned and she has a disease, I’m 17 I am 6’3″ and have been ever since I was 15 but don’t have a disease just my dad is 6’4″ but my mom’s about 5’5″ and I live in Mexico so the differece is a lot more radical from everyone else, practically nobody measures above my shoulder length I really never fit in school chairs and desks and now my back and neck have suffered from that it’s sad all around the world don’t take height into consideration for everyday life, for example in my own house if I go to the kitchen I have to bend down or I don’t fit, and at school I have to slouch to enter the classroom, also I have to put my legs to the hallway ’cause I don’t fit inside the desk, it’s sad but school is a priority for me, also clothing doesn’t take me into consideration here all my pants have to be tailored cause my legs a bit over 40 inches long, fashion, school and construction should take us more seriously.
