Sultan Kosen is the 7th verified  tallest man in history. He is a  Turkish farmer tallest person in the world. 


Sultan Kosen holds the Guinness World Record for tallest living male at (8 ft 2.82 in) and 251 cm. 

His growth reason for the unusual increase in the length of the sultan was “Acromegaly“. This is the stage in which the pituitary gland produces more growth hormone.  

Growth hormone is secreted by the pituitary gland. If a tumor damages this gland, then either this growth hormone starts to be produced more or less. 

Due to unusual length, the Sultan could not complete his schooling and started doing agricultural work to support the family financially. 

Earlier, there was a problem in their marriage due to unusual length. 

But when they became famous as world record holders, a Syrian girl Merve Dibo came to meet him in his village and later both of them got married. 

Sultan Kosen is currently living a happy life with his family.
