THE STORY OF THALIDOMIDE
It’s true that Thalidomide is involved in the primary aetiology of Phocomelia. Phocomelia is a congenital condition that involves malformation of the upper and lower extremities usually making them smaller than normal.
In the history of the NMA Doctors’ Games, it has been recorded that Acquired PseudoPhocomelia was possible as was experienced in Jalingo and Abeokuta when the SouthEasterners brought the agent called Thalidomide, and guess what, almost every other volleyballer acquired the Pseudophocomelia via professional spikes and smashes. You can ask the Southsouthern volleyball teams of the 3rd and 4th editions of NMA Games to confirm.
It got real bad with victories that were flawless and uncontested that the officials had to ask Thalidomide to prove he was a member of the Hippocratic cord. Guess what, he was truly a member, he returned for the next round and was fatal than ever.
The SouthEasterners are relentless and still promises to bring Thalidomide to Port Harcourt 2020.
