Doctors are baffled at the case of Nguyen Thi Phuong, a 26-year-old Vietnamese woman who says that an allergic reaction caused her skin to sag and wrinkle, effectively aging her 50 years in just a few days.

Phuong, who is only now showing her face in public, claims the transformation started after she ate some bad seafood in 2008. She's spent the last three years undergoing treatment to no avail. But there still may be a happy ending: Phuong says the recent media attention has led several doctors to offer to consult on her case free of charge. [The Sun, video via ninemsn]
