The band became to be part of her flesh and skin, giving her hand a bizzare and weird shape.

A rubber band grew into a four-year-old girl’s arm after she wore it for so long the band became sealed over with skin and flesh.

The little girl – who goes by the nickname Le Le – was brought into hospital after her parents became concerned about the red ring which had wrapped itself all the way around her arm.

Le Le – who lives in Linquan county in China’s Eastern Anhui Province – was previously taken to see doctors at the beginning of the year by her grandparents after they spotted a red ring on her forearm.

The little girl – who goes by the nickname Le Le – was brought into hospital after her parents became concerned about the red ring which had wrapped itself all the way around her arm.

However, the presence of the elastic band was not identified and the condition was instead mistakenly diagnosed as being either an infection or an allergic reaction.

When her condition grew more severe, Le Le’s parent’s made the decision to take her to the Children’s Hospital of Zhejiang University School of Medicine in Hangzhou, the capital of nearby Zhejiang Province.

Here, she was treated by Doctor Ye Wensong. After examining the young child, Doctor Ye advised the parents how the growth on her arm – which resembled a bangle – was most probably due to an elastic band.

At first, Le Le’s parents couldn’t believe what they were hearing; however they agreed to allow their child to remain at the hospital to receive further analysis and treatment.

Alarming X-ray scans of Le Le’s right arm showed what seemed to be a foreign body beneath her flesh.

She underwent surgery soon after the scans were taken, and the existence of the elastic band was finally revealed. Le Le had apparently worn the band for some time without her family members noticing.
