Beijeng, March 09: An elderly Chinese woman has shocked friends and family by growing a devil-like horn from the top of her head.

The Sun reported today the strange growth began appearing on 101-year-old Zhang Ruifang's forehead last year.

Since then it has reached more than six centimetres and a matching horn looks to be appearing on the other side.

The grandmother's condition has left her family in Linlou Village, Henan province, baffled and worried.

The youngest of her six sons, Zhang Guozheng, 60, said when a patch of rough skin formed on her forehead last year "we didn't pay too much attention to it."

Zhang, whose eldest brother and sibling is 82-years-old, added, "but as time went on a horn grew out of her head and it is now six centimetres long.

"Now something is also growing on the right side of her forehead. It's quite possible that it's another horn."
Although it is unknown what the growth is, it resembles a cutaneous horn.

These are funnel-shaped growths and although most are only a centimetre in length, some can extend a number of centimetres from the skin.

The growths are most common in elderly people, aged between 60 and the mid-70s.
